Hues of Writing (HoW): Scripwriting for Theatre and TV Series
The 2024 edition of the Summer School Hues of Writing (HoW), organised by the Department of Philology, Literature and Linguistics of the University of Pisa within the frame of the Excellence Project CECIL, will be devoted to Italian scriptwriting, with two separate curricula respectively focused on the theatre and TV series. Students will choose either curriculum.
The 6-day intensive academic program will mainly consist in workshops led by established professionals in the field of theatre writing and TV series writing. Students will be introduced to the techniques of scriptwriting and given the opportunity to practice intensive creative writing (28 h) and discuss the outcome of their work (final project presentation 7 h).
The course will also include a plenary lecture and a plenary round table with experts in literature, creative writing, adaptation, transmedial studies, etc.
HoW to have fun: During the week several cultural events will be organised in Pisa, among which guided tours of the town, cinema and theatre performances.
