Whether you've always fancied a go at playwriting, or you just want to have a go, this course will give you a chance to try playwriting, and come away with the skills to create a character and write a short monologue for them.
It's an interactive class where we will share our work with each other, provide constructive criticism, and edit our work.
By the end of the class, you'll have a short monologue to take away with you, like a souvenir.
It might be something you keep in a diary, print out and stick on your wall, or it could even be the start of a full-length play.
