This event occurred in the past. It is no longer possible to book tickets.
Come and explore an entry point to making your own work. Follow the methodology Holly uses to write her own solo shows – freewriting, inspired by other prominent theatre makers Selina Thompson and Bryony Kimmings. This workshop is for anyone who fancies having a go at creative writing and writing for performance but doesn’t know where to start. Freewriting helps to produce raw material, without worries of structure and logic, letting you concentrate on just getting it out of your head and fixing it later. This workshop gives participants the opportunity to explore generating writing of their own, and develops creative skills in a fun, relaxed, low-pressure environment.
Holly Gallagher is a theatre maker, director, and facilitator based in Thornaby, Teesside interested in new work that speaks about the world we live in today and stimulates an audience's imagination.

She was also a recipient of the Third Angel Mentorship scheme 2017.
