Playwriting: Tutored Retreat

Actors and audience – writing for a live medium

Monday September 2nd - Saturday September 7th 2019

Lumb Bank

A unique opportunity to engage in robust and rigorous discourse about a range of elements, in terms of creating writing that is truly dramatic, theatrical, active and alive. The aim of this course is to provide each participant with the tools to test, interrogate and hone their craft. This will include scrutiny of dramatic action, the role of the audience, point of entry, point of view, genre and style, the world on stage and the world of the play.

Single room price: £795

Low-income writers under 30 can apply for The David Pease Award for Playwriting to receive a full grant for this course. There are still spaces available on this course for the successful grant recipients. Visit our grants page for more info.

Please note that tutored retreat courses do not include morning group workshops and instead provide more time for one-to-one tutorials. The David Pease Award is aimed at more experienced writers who would like to receive project specific feedback on their work as well as the space and time to write.
