Program Description


SBPL & PlayFest 2023 invite writers ages 16 and up to participate in a free playwriting workshop taught by the honoree playwright, Jon Klein. Through a series of short individual and group writing experiments, workshop participants will explore and deepen their playwriting skills and begin to create a short written theatrical work. Jon will also share aspects of his professional playwriting career. 

No experience is necessary, however, an interest in playwriting is a plus. 

The workshop will also take place at the Santa Barbara Central Library in the Faulkner Gallery (East) from 10:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.

The workshop is free; however, reservations are required as capacity in the workshop is limited to assure more individualized coaching. 


Participants in this event may be photographed by Library staff. These photos may be used in promotional or educational publications, including in print, social media, and presentations. Please see staff if you do not consent to having your photo taken. Staff will obtain individual, signed photo releases of photographs that contain only an individual as opposed to a group.
