This event occurred in the past. It is no longer possible to book tickets.
An informal lecture, chat and Q & A on all aspects of professional playwriting and dramaturgy. A session for writers and theatre makers who need a boost, a spark and the reassurance that they're on the right track. The session will also look as dramaturgy – what it is, how to get into it and the relationship between playwrights and dramaturgs. Participants will leave feeling equipped, informed and ready to work with an awareness of different avenues available to them.
