Masterclass: Re-writing your Play with Lisa Goldman

Led by Lisa Goldman, author of The No Rules Handbook for Writers, this intensive weekend masterclass will give you the skills, confidence and focus to sustain you through your next draft. You will scrutinise what is and isn’t working in your script, solve issues of craft and process and deepen your understanding of writing.  Packed with practical tips, short exercises and opportunities for Q & A, this workshop is aimed at playwrights in the process of redrafting, though others are welcome too. Bring your script with you for reference.

Lisa will tailor her masterclass to the needs of the group, so after booking you are welcome to email her in advance, summing up (in just a few lines please!) issues with your existing draft and the questions you are most keen to explore.
