For the 5th year running, our popular Redrafting Course will be making a comeback this October. If you want to redraft your play with practical masterclasses, tailored feedback, and dramaturgical support, read on!
Led by experienced dramaturg and scriptwriter, Kimberley Andrews, this course will give you the tools to unlock the full potential of your play through masterclasses, one-to-one feedback, mentoring and a personalised plan of action for editing your play.
Packed full of practical tips, exercises and individual support from Kimberley, this course promises to leave you perfectly equipped to take your play to the next level.
How it works:
The course is made up of 2 x 90 minutes redrafting masterclasses, a 1 hour individual feedback session where you’ll create a redrafting plan of action, and a tailored troubleshooting masterclass (90 minutes)where you will pick up tips for polishing up your script.
Once you’ve booked your place on the course, you’ll need to send your first draft over to us so that Kimberley can read it prior to the first workshop, we’ll need to receive this no later than 30 September to allow for reading time. Please send your script to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Redrafting Masterclasses (Zoom)
You’ll attend 2 virtual group Redrafting Masterclass where you will explore different approaches to redrafting, learn about practical methods to edit your work and gain the tools you need to start re-writing your play.
You’ll be offered a 1 hour tutorial with Kimberley Andrews, who will give you feedback on your script and discuss which areas need the most work. Kimberley will also provide you with a bullet point redrafting action plan.
