Both courses will include class discussion of take-home readings and film, and thorough examination of students’ own work. Students will work towards the completion of a new screenplay/play or one already in progress. Both courses are suitable for writers at any level. Among others, Bennett wrote the critically acclaimed Off-Broadway play “Corporate Rock” and produced the Off-Broadway cult hit “Fatal Attraction: A Greek Tragedy”, starring Corey Feldman. Before joining the theatre ranks he worked as a journalist in NYC and taught fiction writing at the University of Virginia, where he earned an MFA. He also holds an MA in Writing for Performance from the University of London. For the past few years he has worked as a guide and co-owner of a whitewater rafting company in Montana, where he continues to write and edit manuscripts of all shapes and sizes. He will be returning to his hometown of Chapel Hill in August.
