Free Creative Writing Workshop
Weds 30th October 2019
2.15pm – 3.45pm
Studio One, The Garage, 14 Chapel Field North, Norwich, NR2 1NY
Join playwright Karen Forbes from Stuff of Dreams Theatre Company for a FREE fun and informal introduction to writing for the stage. Karen studied scriptwriting at the University of East Anglia. Her plays include Rebellious Sisterhood, which focused on the lives of Suffragettes Emmeline Pankhurst and Grace Roe, and Edith in the Beginning, a new play about the discovery of the Sutton Hoo treasure.
This 1 ½ hour workshop will include an introduction to all aspects of playwriting including theatre terminology and idea brainstorming. Using Karen’s latest play (Edith – in the beginning) as a starting point, we will focus on bringing real-life, local heritage characters to life. This session will also look at the art of ‘Wellbeing Journal Writing’, a fantastic skill that allows us to explore our own feelings and emotions through expressive writing.
No experience necessary. Bring a pen and notepad! Age 16 plus.
To allow this workshop to be fully accessible to d/Deaf or hard of hearing participants, the session will be supported by Tricia Spencer, a Communication Support Worker and native signer (Tricia has a Deaf brother and daughter).
This workshop is supported by Arts Council England.
