In this subject students work to develop both solo and group work seeded in semester one. A portfolio of writing projects is created, including one major, full-length work and one minor, shorter work, in different forms. Students have the option to write in different forms (plays, postdramatic texts, performance scenarios of various kinds, collaborative projects and so on). At various stages during the semester writers will work with student directors and actors to workshop and read the developing works, with feedback from a range of staff. Readings and workshops will culminate in a season of public ‘performance-readings’ of full-length and/or shorter works at either VCA and/or professional venues around Melbourne.
