The project took form during the fall of 2012. The first semester of the Ten Minute Play Workshop (TMPW) ran 50 sessions. You can listen to all of the sessions on this web site by using the "Blog Archive" section on the right-hand menu. When the project came to a close, I put what I had learned about workshopping ten-minute plays into a little book.
After that first semester, TMPW was such fun I decided to keep it going. We have sessions going on several days each week now. You can submit your script, sign up for a session, or read the workshopping principles we use (workshopping principles for authors | workshopping principles for workshoppers).
The TMPW project is hopefully a win-win for everyone:
- the participants get to practice their critiquing skills
- the author of the script has their work read, workshopped and posted on the TMPW website for even more comments and feedback from site visitors
- I get to practice leading workshop sessions, and continue to write about it
- and, there'll be some TMPW t-shirts and hats going around as well!
