LPW Online Workshops: Playwrighting for Everyone (A 6 Week Course)

In this six week course of 2 hour sessions with Emily Garside, we will combine writing advice and exercises with talking about our own work and sharing/reading extracts (only if you want to!). Designed for anyone whatever your experience of writing- whether you’ve never written a play or you’ve written 10 and just want a way to focus your work. Using a combination of writing tasks, mini talks on writing and a chance to share work and discuss the projects we’re working on, this is designed as a collaborative but informative space for writers to find two hours a week to focus on their work whether they have a current project in mind, or are
just looking to kick start creativity.

Who’s it for: everyone! All levels welcome!
