Playwriting

From idea to page to stage

Monday November 26th - Saturday December 1st 2018

Totleigh Barton

Whether you have an idea but haven’t quite got around to writing that award-winning play yet, or you need help finding that spark of inspiration, this is the week for you. Over the week we will look at ways into writing your play: from character work to exploring setting and staging to hearing your work read out loud. This week will leave you with fresh impetus to finish your play and a set of skills that you will be able to utilise throughout your writing career.

This course is half-price for Arvon 18-25 members and those in receipt of certain UK state benefits – see here for concession pricing information.
