The focus of the course is to help you find your voice as a writer. The course is divided into two modules where writers will be introduced to skills necessary to writing a full length play. The course will give an in-depth insight into creating character, plot, structuring scenes, and writing dialogue. The first module will culminate in writers creating ten-minute short plays which will be shared in a rehearsed staged reading in front of an invited audience. The second module will firstly focus on writers creating one act plays which will be staged for an audience. At the end of the course, the writers will have developed their own full length plays to start their writing careers.

The course will be for one year. Each class will be three hours, 9am to 12pm every second Saturday. The alternate Saturdays will be used for feedback and online engagement.
