Gemma Arrowsmith, writer on Tracey Ullman’s Show and script editor of Newsjack is running ‘The Crash Course’; a short FREE online sketch comedy writing course aimed at improving diversity in writers’ rooms. The Crash Course consists of four 90 min workshops covering sketch structure, game, escalation, punchlines, writing for TV and radio, writing to a brief, formatting and topical sketch writing – amongst other things!
This course is aimed at under-represented groups. If you are Black, South Asian, East Asian or mixed race, if you are someone who is living with a disability, if you are non-binary, trans or queer, living on a low income or come from a working class or lower middle class background, this course might be for you.
Course starts 6th July 2020.
Deadline: 19th June 2020, 17:00 (BST).
