The Writers' Room Wednesdays 11 Nov to 16

We will be running a selective 6 week course with Jas Fisher-Ryner. The dates and times are 5:30pm-7:30pm every Wednesday from 11 Nov to 16 Dec. In November this will take place on Zoom with a planned return to Hackney Empire in December if that is possible.

The creative writing workshop will be 6 week programme led by Jas Fisher-Ryner, which will focus on new writing in different forms either play, screen or poems. Over the 6 weeks, we look at the different ways to begin writing and developing stories and ways to turn ideas into projects. There will be different special guests, who will discuss their work and how they began writing, as well as activities that help them create their ideas. By the end of the programme, you will have written either a 10 page short play, screen writing or a finished poetry performance script.

It will ask you to share your idea for your piece and give the option of showing as an example of your writing. You do not have to have experience writing scripts to apply and we will explore the use of music and poetry as part of the programme. We are looking for writers with a passion to tell a story and develop their craft.
