Writing for TV with Mark Illis – Dialogue Workshop

£3.50 per person, per session

Suitable for ages 16+

Mark Illis, who has written for EastEnders, The Bill and Emmerdale, will be joining us to host 2 separate workshops for both beginners and more experienced writers. The first will focus on structure and the second will look at dialogue.

Dialogue workshop, 1.30-3.30pm 

How do you avoid exposition, and stop your dialogue from being stilted and clunky? And what about the power of silence? We’ll use individual work and group work to explore how to make your characters speak.

Make sure you book your tickets so you don’t miss out!
