503Studio Masterclass: The Art of Developing Ideas, Guleraana Mir
Do you have a thought, or an idea? Are you struggling to flesh out, or talk about your story?
Bring an idea for a play that you’re either struggling with, or are in the early stages of consideration. Using creative exercises and peer feedback we’ll explore the nuts and bolts of what it takes to develop exciting worlds, strong character journeys and cohesive storytelling so you’re all set to write your next play. Suitable for anyone that’s written at least one play from beginning to end.
Thanks to our Share The Drama scheme, we want to make sure those of you who are struggling in the current climate can still take part in our Writers Programme. While we prioritise anyone who is long term unemployed and/or claiming benefits, we’re also offering subsidies if you’re in financial difficulty as a result of the Covid-19 crisis.
