Writing Workshops

I offer relaxed, enjoyable writing and script-reading workshops for age 50+. The groups are all small, friendly and welcoming, regardless of your previous writing experience. This is a chance to meet new people and learn new skills. 

I’m a professional writer, with 6 years of experience in running writing workshops. Each course is 10 weeks long, with weekly 1.5 hour sessions during the school term time. Free taster sessions are available for each of them. The Autumn term 2022 starts the week commencing 12th September.

Please find the details of my various workshops below: 

Nottingham Playhouse Encore Readers (Afternoon) 

Established, thriving book club for theatre scripts. Our small, friendly group reads and discusses 3-4 full length theatre scripts together each term. We also arrange for playwrights to come in and talk to the group. This course is online for the Autumn term, so you can join from anywhere!

This weekly session is like an actor’s table read, with participants reading different roles out loud, in order to enjoy the story together. We read, then every few pages, we discuss the story together to gain a deeper understanding of the playwright’s intentions.

No performance skills required. We simply read the parts. However, feel free to embrace the dialogue as your character, should you choose. We’re a small, friendly, welcoming group. Come and enjoy exploring new worlds with us. The sessions are designed to be thought-provoking, entertaining, and fun!
