Long Island’s Studio Theatre Announces Playwriting Class
Author, journalist, and multi-published fiction writer Meagan J. Meehan has just announced the debut of her first hybrid offline/online playwriting class which was created in collaboration with Long Island’s Studio Theatre and Artistic Director David Dubin. The twelve-week long class will begin on Wednesday, September 4, and run until Sunday, November 24.
The class runs for 12 weeks, primarily online as it is specifically designed to accommodate people with busy schedules. The class begins on Wednesday, September 4. For the initial class, participants will meet at Studio Theatre in Lindenhurst at 7pm and have a chance to see the stage where their work will ultimately be presented. Although this initial in-person meeting is not required, it is very strongly recommended.
Aside from the optional initial meeting, the first eight weeks of the class will be conducted online and will be dedicated entirely to the playwriting process. At the end of the class everyone will have completed a short play or a stand-alone scene from an original full-length production. No set times to attend are required during the online weeks, meaning that each student can make their own hours to fit their schedule.
The final four weeks will be held at theater and are dedicated to casting and rehearsing the plays. By the conclusion of the class, every play will then be presented on Studio Theatre’s famous stage via a one-act play festival that will run on the third weekend in November to celebrate the conclusion of the class. Although the plays will be performed by professional actors, if a playwright chooses to star in their own piece that is also permissible.
Meagan J. Meehan is a published author, poet, cartoonist and produced playwright who presently works as a journalist and an art and writing teacher. She holds a Bachelors in English Literature from New York Institute of Technology (NYIT), a Masters in Communication from Marist College, and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Curriculum, Instruction and the Science of Learning (a form of Educational Psychology) from University at Buffalo (SUNY).
Meehan has designed and taught several creative writing classes that end with every participant’s story being published in either a printed anthology or in eBook form. To date, she has hosted fully online Horror writing classes, a children’s book writing course, and will be launching online classes for the genres of Science Fiction, Fantasy, Mystery/Thriller/Crime, and Romance in the near future. This is her premiere playwriting class.
For the full twelve weeks, which includes the writing, casting, rehearsing, and production, the price is $485. Payment plans for as little as $40 a week (less than $6 a day) are available. There is space for 12 students in the class. Participants are accepted on a first come, first served, basis. If more than 12 students wish to sign up, we can put them on a waiting list. If this initial class is successful we will launch it again in the Spring.
Meagan J. Meehan launches her “Worthwhile Writing” classes under the umbrella of her fledgling non-profit organization Artsy Cr8tive Initiatives. Anyone who is interested in signing up for the class should email Meagan at
Note: Every effort will be made to present all plays, as long as the themes are not overly sexual or violent.
