This 1 day masterclass will introduce different ways to approach writing and editing collaboratively. As many writers increasingly work across theatre, opera, film and TV, they encounter multiple models of ‘collaboration’ at various stages in the writing process: from feedback notes emailed to the solitary author, to simultaneous co-authoring by a group of writers sat around a table.
In this context, group writing can often be a muddy affair to navigate! This masterclass will embrace the mess, by focussing on particular details that are created within a collective panorama. We will unpack ways to:
– Identify core stimuli to write from and/or respond to
– Generate material as a group
– Plot and structure a collective narrative
– Playfully edit a collective script using simultaneous dramaturgy
Paper Tiger is an emerging collective of theatre and film makers, working collaboratively and autonomously, who have co–written in the past and, with the support of Arts Council England, are working together on three new scripts in development. They are currently resident as Associate Artists at Ovalhouse.
Cost: £30 per participant.
