52 Collective are running a series of workshops across the next three weeks to help you get started with playwriting or refresh your knowledge and build new skills. Each workshop will cover a different aspect of playwriting and will be led by playwrights based across East London.
They’ll share different tips and exercises to get you thinking creatively over the next couple of weeks.
Week 1: Overcoming Writer’s Block - Want to try playwriting but not sure where to start? Danusia Samal will help you to conquer the blank page, with exercises and tasks to generate characters and ideas.
Week 2: Creating Hopeful Stories - Conflict is at the heart of all stories - but how do your characters cope with the obstacles you create for them? How can you explore these ideas whilst still creating hopeful stories?
Week 3: Exploring Your Voice - Ever struggled with making your characters sound real? For our final workshop, we’ll explore how you can use your own voice to make your work unique to you as a writer.
At the end of each session, we’ll have a 30 minute Q+A for you to ask any questions.
