Soho holds three Clinics a year – intensive weekend workshops designed to refresh your writing practice, explore the craft of playwriting, offer one-to-one feedback and a sense of network and community.
A unique and dynamic weekend, teeming with inspiration from the most compelling writers and practitioners associated with Soho Theatre, this Autumn’s Clinic will once again cover a broad range of approaches to the craft and career of playwriting.
The weekend will include sessions from:
Award winning playwright Joel Horwood (I Heart Peterborough) on Tight Briefs – a session on how to approach writing to specific briefs (set by others or yourself) in surprising and innovative ways;
Soho’s Education Director, Suzanne Gorman, on Writing in the Wild – exploring how the detail of landscapes and communities can inspire the development of unique and intensely theatrical work that blurs the lines between real and fictional lives;
Casting Director Nadine Rennie and Artistic Associate, Dan Herd on Acting Up – examining how to think about your work from a performance perspective and demystifying how the actor’s and casting processes really work.
The weekend also offers participants the exclusive opportunity for one-on-one feedback sessions on your work led by members of the Writers’ Centre Team.
Ideal for writers at any stage of their development and filled with friendly discussion and debate, this weekend is guaranteed to take you to the next level in terms of how you think about and approach your work.
