Playwriting Real-Life: The New Podcast from London Playwrights – Available now!

The first two Episodes of our brand new podcastares available now!

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.

Kimberley says:

“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”.

  1. Hi Kimberley. I’ve very much enjoyed your podcasts, and delighted to hear that you want suggestions for further topics. How about self-producing? For those of us without a background in theatre, how do we find collaborators? Where is the best place to find the perfect director and actors, and venue? Are there forums/websites for people looking to self-produce? How do people kickstart a theatre project? I realise it’s all “how long is a piece of string?” and “it depends who you know” but to hear other people’s experiences/successful case studies/ideas for what they would have done differently – would be great.
    Thanks and best wishes,
    Deborah

      Hi Deborah, thanks so much for listening and for taking the time to send some ideas – this is all great and something we can definitely cover in future episodes. I’ll get on the case with researching this! Thanks, Kimberley
