LPW Online Workshops: The Redrafting Programme

Ever wanted the information from a practical workshop paired with individual feedback tailored especially for you? Then look no further than the Redrafting Programme. 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 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 26 September to allow for reading time.
