Paula Vogel Playwriting Bootcamp
Over the weekend of January 15 and 16, 2011, Paula Vogel, joined by Young Plawrights alumna, Tony Award nominee and two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist Quiara Alegría Hudes, engaged a group of students, playwrights and theatre artists from across Philadelphia in conversations on playwriting form, the current state of theater and the craft of writing. The participants engaged in a number of collective and individual writing challenges.
Paula Vogel is among America’s most distinguished playwrights, having been awarded a Pulitzer Prize for her 1997 play How I Learned to Drive, and is perhaps its most renowned teacher of playwriting. Currently, Ms. Vogel is the Eugene O’Neill Professor of Playwriting and Playwriting Chair at the Yale School of Drama.
“I want to proselytize that everyone is a playwright,” says Ms. Vogel.
