Overview

The first edition of The Playwright's Survival Guide made life simpler for writers by offering an emotional, spiritual, and commonsensical approach to the profession and, most important, to their own writing. Now Gary Garrison returns and makes life even easier with a fully updated and revised New, Improved edition of his bible for aspiring and established playwrights.

Garrison's how-to guide includes inspirational stories, tricks of the trade, and reassurance, and it now incorporates new information on dramatic structure, synopsizing a play, and avoiding the perils that can sink well-intentioned staged readings - all while maintaining the candid, enthusiastic, and, sometimes, salty voice that made the first edition so popular.

Demystifying the playwriting process, Garrison speaks directly to practitioners, offering the lessons of the craft in his trademark blend of honesty, humor, and horse sense. He explores the questions that playwrights face every day, including:

  • uncovering inspiration
  • dealing with criticism
  • turning off the internal critic
  • finding teachers and mentors and then maintaining relationships with them
  • self-promoting the smart way
  • triumphing over writer's block
  • staying healthy in the art and the business after your fingers are off the keyboard.
Don't just make a living at playwriting. Read The New, Improved Playwright's Survival Guide and make a life of it.
