This class is for anyone who has opinions about theater and wants to learn how they are constructively expressed. Attendees will read some examples of contemporary criticism, dissect the ingredients employed in each piece, and learn about the many forms arts journalism can take. Led by arts journalist and The Brooklyn Rail Theater Editor Billy McEntee, this interactive course will provide attendees with a host of resources and tools needed to pen their own reviews. Come to one part, or both — no prior writing or criticism experience is necessary!
