“James McDermott’s workshops helped me to discover new ideas and find solutions to existing problems in stories I’m writing through some excellent and insightful exercises. He was an affable workshop leader with a deep and wide knowledge of how to write theatre.” Martin Figura, Spoken Word Artist

Learn about the craft of scriptwriting through masterclasses and workshops. The course provides opportunities to learn how to generate stories, create characters, write dialogue and structure scripts. By the end of the course, you will have an extensive knowledge of dramaturgy, will have built up a portfolio of work and where appropriate will have had the opportunity to hear your own work in a shared reading by our own acting students. No writing experience necessary.

The course will be led by renowned East Anglian scriptwriter James McDermott.
