Starting 15th November
Have you ever wanted to write a play but don’t know where to start? Maybe you write already but need to find some inspiration or more structure to your work? Well congratulations you’ve come to the right (write) place!
Write Club brings you An Introduction to Playwriting, a short 5 week course that will give you the tools for bringing your words to the stage.
An Introduction to Playwriting will be a Tutor led course by a professional playwright. Over this five week course students will explore plot, character creation, dialogue, dramatic action, staging and how to find inspiration through a series of exercises. You will be encouraged to share your work and offered constructive feedback throughout the course.
This is the beginning of a new SLT Fire Station initiative to encourage the local community and SLT members to unlock their storytelling potential. Regular group sessions will seek to inspire and encourage bringing new voices to the stage. The course is just the beginning.
Write Club will organise regular meet-ups to read and discuss each other’s work, plan rehearsed readings, a dedicated forum with helpful links and discussion points and a writer’s support network.
