Do you write? Would you like to write a play but just don’t know where to begin?

Freedom Studios will host a FREE 8 week ‘Introduction to Playwriting Course’ this Summer and we would love to hear from creative writers who would like to have a first go at playwriting. Interested applicants must be 18 or over with little or no experience of writing for theatre (the screen or the stage).

In this 8-week course, we’ll be focusing on the basics of theatre writing including; character, story, structure, plot development, writing realistic dialogue and theatricality.

The course will be run by writer Lisa Holdsworth, a BAFTA-nominated television writer who has also written several acclaimed theatre productions, as well as being Chair of the Writers Guild.
