During the 10 years that Stuart Spencer has taught playwriting, he has struggled to discover an efficient playwriting guide for his classes. even if many of the at the moment renowned handbooks have reliable rules in them, all of them be afflicted by an analogous difficulties: they are poorly prepared; are composed typically of quirky, idiosyncratic suggestion on how particular playwrights have long past approximately writing their very own paintings; and are jam-packed with summary theorizing at the nature of artwork. for that reason, they fail to provide any concrete details on how one can build a well-written play or any priceless instructions and workouts. furthermore, few of those books are literally written by way of operating playwrights. Out of frustration, Spencer wrote his personal e-book. the end result, The Playwright's Guidebook, is a transparent, concise, and interesting guide. Spencer addresses the $64000 ideas of constitution, contains insightful writing workouts that construct upon each other, explores the artistic strategy, and troubleshoots recurrent difficulties that playwrights truly face.
