503Studio Masterclass: Finding your Voice

In this masterclass, Bea Roberts will guide you in exploring how to do the thing that no-one else can ever do – write from your voice. Together you’ll look at ways you can find your unique style and perspective and how we can write authentically and honestly in any kind of form from autobiographical naturalism through to farce, surrealism and musicals. Plus how Doja Cat’s viral hit ‘B*tch I’m a Cow’ might just point you in the right direction…
