Playwright Tim West knows narrative can do many things, but the dramatic conflict is fundamentally tied to dialogue. Learn how character development and plot ‘ turns,’ your authorial mode and the meaning you work for, are all related to the way we speak as well as the way we write.

 

timwestTim West has been a San Diego-based theatre artist for more than 25 years. He is a noted actor with 40+ area professional credits in theatres from Lambs Players to ion. As a playwright, he has had more than a dozen of his plays produced, including multiple works commissioned by both Scripps Ranch Theatre and Sledgehammer Theatre, as well as one by the San Diego Zoo. He has taught writing for general audiences at Cygnet Theatre and the resident ensemble master class at Sledgehammer as well as for the talented kids of San Diego Junior Theatre, kids building skills at San Diego City Schools, and adult speakers of English as a Second Language. These techniques are universally effective in freeing the writer’s voice in each of us. Tim draws from a variety of sources, but his techniques are based primarily on the communal work of Obie Award winner Deb Margolin, with whom he studied the Audrey Skirball- Kenis Foundation in Los Angeles. Tim is a graduate of San Diego State University.
