For Write Now 6, we pleased to welcome Anna Jordan (winner of the 2013 Bruntwood Prize) and Suzanne Gorman (Artistic Director of Maya Productions), to lead this year’s workshops, alongside David Bottomley (the Jack’s Literary Manager).
Big Adventures in Small Worlds. In this workshop we use automatic writing exercises, drawing on our past experiences to create authentic familiar worlds for our characters to inhabit. This ‘small world’ is then a safe place to explore a ‘big adventure’, allowing us to investigate challenging, scary and unwieldy themes and events. Led by Anna Jordan.
Saturday May 16th (1-3pm)
Synopsis Surgery. Get it right before you write! This workshop is about honing a workable blueprint for your play. Pitch and kick ideas around and get feedback from group discussion to move your play forward. Led by David Bottomley. Saturday May 23rd (1-3pm)
Inventing In/credible! Characters A practical look at how to craft truthful and believable characters with real potential to inspire great drama. Come with a character in mind or create one on the spot. Led by Suzanne Gorman. Saturday May 30th (1-3pm)
All workshops are just £5, and suitable for all experiences. Booking will be open from next week.
We are also delighted that George Turvey (Artistic Director of Papatango) will be joining us at the Jack as this year’s Write Now Dramaturg.
