Workshops and Learning , Artist Development
Monday 9 December 2019

In Good Company are trialling our first ever Writers Drop-In with literary dramaturg Raphael Martin from The Lit Shop, who has over fifteen years of experience in theatrical literary management, dramaturgy, and development.

Got a knotty piece of dialogue? Need help with that particular scene that’s causing you trouble? Then this is the thing for you.

The sessions are one hour long, and are for writers who are currently writing new work, and have a specific issue they would like advice on whether that be a specific scene or piece of dialogue. Writers should bring extracts of work for stage, radio or screen.

There are only three sessions available, so it is extremely limited availability for this writers session. They are free but with this is mind, please only book a slot if you are 100% sure you able to come to the session. Booking is on a first come, first served basis on this occasion. Please note, It would be not be possible for Raphael to read the full-script.
