Here’s an opportunity to get together and do some writing… and on Monday 13th August… it’s PAY WHAT YOU CAN (minimum $2 donation) for a night’s worth of playwriting.

How many times do you feel like you just want to get out of the house and do something creative in a creative space? I don’t know about you, but sometimes I just want a deadline to work to on … I want to jam some quick ideas – which might be disposable – or which might be long-lingering – but without expectation or the burden of writing a WHOLE PLAY. Sometimes I want to be inspired by other people’s writing. And that’s what Write Here, Write Now is about.

Setting aside time to write: in a different environment, with a variety of exercises and tasks, with other writers, who are there not to “learn” but who are there for the joy of writing. It’s a workshop to inspire play and character generation and provides a networking opportunity for like minded writers.

Bring your laptop, or pen and paper, or pencil or whatever it is you use to write. Make yourself a cup of tea, and we’ll get stuck into it.

And if you need an altruistic reason to come and do some writing – this workshop is a fundraiser for the space – so it’s pay what you can/want. And then if you are super keen you can sign up for the 4 week series is on offer, with the money going directly to the space to help with rennovations.

Anyway, here’s the Blurb:

Write Here, Write Now – is a dynamic workshop for playwrights seeking to sharpen their writing skills, expand their network and create a new works by “writing on the spot” during a series of workshops. Headed by Augusta Supple, this is a unique opportunity for writers to explore and develop their work in a supportive environment. The workshops are aimed at writers with a view to developing plays ready for production. Each week, individual and group exercises will be provided to invigorate and challenge the writers to experiment with form, style and story. They will be provided with dramaturgical feedback and support with the final session dedicated to a small in-house play reading by actors.
