Live Canon - Playwriting for Poets, correspondence course

Friday 8 December 2017

It will be taught by Dr Helen Eastman, the founding director of Live Canon, who has written theatre, opera and musical theatre globally, and is a guest lecturer in playwriting at the University of Westminster. 

Each week there will be a course tutorial sent out, with course materials to read, audio to listen to and video to watch. There will be quick writing tasks to complete and a longer writing assignment. There will be written feedback on the assignment. There will be an online discussion group for those on the course for chatting with peers and giving each other feedback. 

This is a new course for us to run, and we have created it because it was suggested by several poets as something unique Live Canon could offer, from its liminal position straddling theatre and poetry. 

The course will cost £150 (£75 for students/unwaged)
