YPT’s Online Playwriting Program for Young People

Virtual Playwriting Classes Weekly

Bring live virtual instruction to your students with a YPT Teaching Artist. Online courses take place twice weekly for each school level for six weeks. The current term takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from May 5 to May 28, 2020. Students complete assignments weekly and receive direct feedback from a YPT Teaching Artist. Classes are $40 and tuition support is available for students in need.

Workshops are designed for young people ages 8 to 18 years old. If you are a teacher or school administrator interested in integrating playwriting into your digital classroom, or if you are a parent looking for creative arts instruction for your child, please contact YPT Program Director Jared Shamberger at to learn more and get started.
