Central Alberta playwrights can learn how to overcome writers’ block and generate new ideas on Sunday, Nov. 4.

A workshop called Putting it to Paper: Splash Writing for New Playwrights will be led from 1 to 5 p.m. by David van Belle, co-artistic director of Ghost River Theatre in Calgary.

The $20 workshop, held in Studio B of the Red Deer College Arts Centre, is being offered by Scripts at Work to officially launch its 2012-13 season. “This is a perfect opportunity to learn about the creative process,” said Lynda Adams, co-chair of the non-profit SAW series that provides professional dramaturges to mentor new playwrights.

Attendance is limited to 16 participants. To register, call 403-343-4054 or email lynda.adams@rdc.ab.ca.
