This semester, which begins on Monday, March 8, will offer fourteen online courses, including five brand new DGI original writing workshops and a brand new foundation course in our "Architecture of Plays" series: American Indian and First Nations Writers taught by Rhiana Yazzie.

Become inspired to reinvent and reinvigorate the theatre through social justice in Sheri Wilner's course on Writing Plays to Address Social Justice. Learn to elevate the dialogue in your writing, so that it illuminates character, enhances the story, and fulfills your art, in Matthew Paul Olmos' Challenges of Dialogue. Dive into the nooks and crannies of writing horror and sci-fi for the stage with Jacqueline Goldfinger in her course on Writing Genre for the Stage: Horror and Sci-Fi. Explore a meditative experience that will help you to restart and re-envision your writing routine in Unexpected Threads taught by new DGI faculty member Mona Mansour.

We're also excited to welcome back two fantastic musical theatre writers to the DGI faculty; Marcy Heisler will be teaching Writing Funny Songs and Mark Hollmann will be teaching Musical Theatre Songwriting for the Composer/Lyricist

Now, more than ever, the opportunities for self-expression and connection through storytelling sustain us and reinforce our community of dramatists. To view our full list of spring semester offerings, please visit www.dginstitute.org.
