Just a quick note which might be interesting for any non-Dublin based playwrights looking to develop their work or receive feedback (this also might be of interest to Dublin-based playwrights who find it difficult to commit to a six or eight week course!)
Alongside the group playwriting courses I run for Big smoke Writing Factory, I also offer an online course and a play reading service.
The first is useful for those developing a work in progress, as we work together over a period of six to eight weeks, with me sending tutorials and the playwright sending work to be critiqued in return. The second option is good for any of you who may have a play in a drawer that they need a second opinion on! Generally I read the play and deliver four to five pages of feedback within a two week period, before meeting with the playwright to discuss. I really enjoy this one-to-one work, and I know it’s helped a few playwrights get excited about a project all over again.
I’m accepting participants for the online course and the play reading service on a rolling basis. Links to some more info on both services here – and you can always contact me here if you’ve any questions.
