workshops for new writers

Workshops for people looking to develop their skills and confidence in script writing. A safe space to learn and question and share challenges and ideas with other like minded people.  We are piloting seven weeks of skills sessions this summer to build a network of writers in cornwall who are interested in writing for theatre. We have been funded by Cultivator and supported by the Hall for Cornwall. They will be held at The Old Ale House on Tuesday evenings, starting from 25th of July. If you are interested, please email with some information about yourself and why you would like to join the network. 

Workshops will be facilitated by Max Webb with Dramaturgical input from Rosanna. See below for the responses from the last set of Dramaturgical workshops... 


Canvas held 2 days of workshops with HFC Arts Development Insight where Rosanna worked with four different writers on 10 minute excerpts of plays. See what the writers involved had to say...

‘I feel newly invigorated and keen to try out fresh ideas. Rosanna’s approach as a dramaturg was supportive, precise and open and helpful. I felt like my work was treated with appreciation and respect.’ Jack Sanderson Thwaite

‘For a long time I felt like I was hitting my head against a brick wall with it, and after the session I couldn't wait to start work on it again. I would recommend these sessions to other writers and I would seek similar opportunities for all of my projects from now on.  Kelvin Fawdrey
