Playwriting Officer Signing Off!
Just a short and sweet final blog to say thank you and goodbye.
All good things must come to an end as the saying goes, but what an epic time I have had.
My role as the Playwriting Officer here at Hull Truck Theatre has been one that I am extremely proud of and hopefully one that will bump my CV for the next money maker.
Working with the amazing team here at the theatre on such an awesome project such as 37 Plays has been nothing but a pleasure.
The theatre has offered so much that has been amazing to be part of in the past five months and I can’t put into words how enjoyable it has been for me to help support and inspire local writers to get involved with the project.
The offer has been so generous, from educational workshops in schools, colleges, and university, to 10-week courses for two sets of writer’s groups, that have both had sharings of their work at the theatre with invited audiences. We’ve also had the weekend writers Boot Camp for our artist network that ended with me providing one-to-one sessions with each individual writer and I managed to visit a handful of youth and community groups at places like The Warren and Kingston Youth Centre too. It’s been so magic to be part of and it’s all been free for participants, what an opportunity for Hull writers.
If you are still wanting to complete a script and submit it to 37 Plays you still have a few days left to do so before the deadline on 31st January. So why not have a read through my previous blogs, check out my advice and tips. Have a read over our words of wisdom from local playwrights and get inspired and get that play completed and sent off!
You can also still access the resources on the 37 Plays website and check out their podcast with Mark Ravenhill and their masterclass videos on their YouTube channel.
Come on, you got this!
I’ll try really hard not to get too emosh over my time at Hull Truck Theatre coming to an end in the capacity of the Playwriting Officer, but I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed it won’t be the last time I work with the mega awesome team of peeps here. It hasn’t been the first and I endeavour it won’t be my last.
I’d like to thank all the staff who have made me feel welcome and supported and all the writers that have been brave and engaged with us and the project.
Keep writing folks because that’s what us writers do!
Thank You and Goodbye xx
