Each week we look through our pile of writing opportunities to pick out one we think is particularly worth your time. It could be an innovative brief, great prize money, a high-profile company, or just plain fun.
This week’s pick: Self-Producing Workshop with London Playwrights Workshop
Description: This week we’re giving a plug to a London Playwrights Blog opportunity – a Self-Producing Workshop coming up this Saturday. This full day intensive talks through everything you need to know to successfully get your work onstage – from negotiating with venues, building a team, putting together a rehearsal schedule, funding your project, and marketing it to industry and the public.
So, what’s so great about it? We ran this workshop earlier this year to fabulous feedback from the participants, and we’re really looking forward to sharing it with a new batch of writers. Learning how to produce your own work is an emerging writer’s best opportunity to advocate for yourself and your work, and you’ll be getting top tips and real examples of emails to negotiate with venues, publicity materials, budgets, and most importantly, individualised advice tailored to your goals. At £90, we’re aware this is a serious investment in your work, so we make sure to pack the day with information and make it an enjoyable process – and our feedback speaks to the value. The workshop is happening this weekend, so book quickly if you don’t want to miss out!
