Courses

πŸ“š Last year, I started teaching PLAYWRITING for beginners at Park Street Performing Arts in Hull, and I am beyond happy to say that after a successful Page to Stage for our students, I will be running another course.

This time, the course will be run online, allowing the opportunity for those outside the area to join in too (also it’s nice to stay in when the weather is bad!)

This will be without a doubt one of the best priced playwriting courses you will come across. Playwrights, will still have the opportunity to enter their short plays into a Page to Stage later in the year. πŸ₯°

Those who were with me before Christmas have seen the benefit and the joy of having your words brought to life.

Over the duration of ten weeks, we will break down the aspects of a play, look at developing good strong characters and dialogue, while understanding the power of silence. 🎭

By looking at a selection of plays, old and new, we will learn how to develop the craft of writing for the stage.

In week seven we will have a table read by actors. This is a vital part of playwriting and a great learning curve in simply listening to your words while seeing if they translate into what you hoped.

By week ten, you should have or be on your way (we appreciate everyone is busy and this is not a marked course)to a 15 minute, 3 person short play.

Each week you will have a writing prompt (so don’t worry if you come with no ideas, you will leave with plenty!) and receive feedback.

There is no pressure to share your writing with the rest of the class, but it’s greatly encouraged so you get the most out of it.

For further details email me at:

Feedback@thecoffeehousewriter.

The course starts at 6pm on Monday, 21st March and runs for ten weeks.

Price is Β£60 per person per course and can be paid weekly.

Ever had a a niggle to write a novel, then ignored it because you doubt yourself, your don’t have a clue what to do,

This year long course has been designed for writers like you!

In January, you will learn what makes a story and look at the idea you have or have already started, and want to work with.

By February, you will be looking at the different aspects from characters, setting, looking at themes and genres ready for…

March, when we will start plotting and planning your novel out, with myself as your mentor, each step of the way offering professional advice and feedback.

From April to September, you will write your first draft, and like each month before, you will continue to have weekly group meetings with small challenges to help get the best from your writing, and a monthly one hour long 1-1 to discuss your personal project.

October. brings a rest from writing your novel, and the focus now turns to you as the author. While we are reading your first drafts and providing detailed feedback, you will look at and work on author branding, website design, digital marketing and the differences in publishing routes.

November sees you finalising edits* and tidying up your novel ready for…

December, and preparation for submission, whichever route you want to go down, either traditional or Indie (self-publishing).

This course has been designed to work around a busy and often hectic work/life schedule. There is no pressure to meet deadlines.

You will receive plenty of motivation and encouragement, and with any course, the more you put in, the more you will get out.
