This course is the perfect starting point for anyone who wants to write a play. 

Over this four week course we will explore the building blocks of writing drama, including structure, character, monologues, duologues, sense of place and narrative arcs. 

We'll explore the technical aspects of writing for stage (and in part, for screen) as well as the creative sides. 

By the end of the course you will have the characters, setting and narrative to write a play - the ultimate aim being that you will turn them into a full play. 

This course is suitable for anyone who enjoys writing and/or acting. 

This is a beginners course and is open to all levels. 

At the end of the course you will have the option to join our online writing club so you can  carry on writing with friends. 

Course price includes one free membership month to our Online Writing Club.
