LPW: The Redrafting Programme Course 2020

Following the success of last year’s Redrafting Programme, our popular Redrafting Course will be making a comeback in September 2020. If you want to redraft your play with practical masterclasses, tailored feedback, and dramaturgical support, read on!

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 a redrafting masterclass, a 45 minute feedback session where you’ll create a redrafting plan of action, and a tailored trouble-shooting masterclass.

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 by the end of September.

Redrafting Masterclass

You’ll attend a 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.

Individual Tutorials

You’ll be offered a 45 minute 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.

Troubleshooting Masterclass

After you’ve taken some time to redraft your work, the group will meet again for a troubleshooting masterclass. In this session, you’ll be given the chance to share problematic scenes with the group and explore how to overcome common hurdles within the redrafting process.
