Write Club

Write Club is back!

After the success of our first write Club in 2018 we are excited to announce that it will be running again.  write pic

Starting 17th April

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 is a short 5 week course that will give you the tools for bringing your words to the stage. There will be a 2 week break in the middle to allow you writing time with your own piece.

Write Club is 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.

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.
