    Writers Lab is a group for people looking to explore writing for performance. 

    Suitable for beginners and those who have already begun the journey, over the course of weekly sessions we will look at enabling people to discover their voice as writers, develop confidence and encourage creativity. Alongside this we will develop craft through exercises exploring the basics of dramatic structure, developing character, dialogue and story. We will also be working towards a performance in future terms for those who want to progress. 

    This course will be delivered by Mike Akers.
