ARCHIVE- Redrafting workshops blogs and support
Over the years we’ve commissioned some brilliant writers to create workshops on redrafting. Livestream workshops Nicola McCartney joined us at the Royal Exchange Theatre…
On Tuesday 20 January back in 2015 the Bruntwood Prize hosted our own first live online workshop with award-winning playwright Bryony Lavery on the subject ‘GETTING STARTED AND CREATING THEATRICAL CHARACTERS’.
The aim of this workshop is to inspire, provoke, challenge and support playwrights to create new work to submit for the Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting.
As well as helping to kick-start your writing and get you going on preparing your script, this workshop will also explore ideas to inspire you, questions to ask yourself when starting your play, and practical tips on developing your ideas, as well as exploring what makes a theatrical character and how to take your characters, and your audience, on a truly memorable and imaginative journey.

There’s a rich archive of writing resources here on this site to inspire and offer places to start. I recommend Eve Leigh’s Workshop for the Digital Body and all of Director Lyndsey Turners blogs offer short insights and provocations to get you back to writing
