my workshops and talks encourage attendees to create and share their
own work during the session, with feedback given by myself and by peer
assessment designed to encourage, enthuse and to help aspiring writers
develop their skills with confidence.
I can also present 'follow
up' workshops for Stage Plays that are drama based. This is essentially
an opportunity for writers to direct their own play and learn from what
works and what doesn't in this media by experimentation and
performance. Geared to all ages. An excellent cross curriculum exercise
for both Drama, English and Performing arts subjects. This workshop
works well if done with English students in the morning - writing short
plays in groups/pairs. In the afternoon the plays are then given to
drama groups in order to 'workshop' them through cold reading and
The day ends with peer, class teachers (where
relevant) and my own assessment, as well as a self evaluation exercise
for the writers after seeing their work performed.
