Playwriting Real-life explores all the issues, dilemmas, and challenges emerging playwrights face today. From making time to write in a busy world, to coping with rejection, to whether you should pay to submit your work – no subject is off the table!
Hosted by London Playwrights director, Kimberley Andrews, the podcast will address the common burning questions asked by emerging writers.
“I meet hundreds of writers through online workshops, script consulting, mentoring, and interaction on social media and I’ve learned that there common issues, outside of the creative process, that emerging playwrights need to discuss. I often talk to writers about things like work-life balance, paying entry fees to submit their work, and dealing with rejection or imposter syndrome. I’m hoping the podcast will address these issues in an honest, refreshing way which will benefit emerging writers in developing their careers”.
