A workshop for writers who are interested in creating autobiographical work
This practical, hands-on workshop will guide participants in discussions on how drawing on your personal story can create powerful and meaningful work. Led by award-winning poet, playwright and performer, Hannah Lavery (The Drift, Lament for Sheku Bayoh) you'll learn writing prompts that can help you get your ideas down on paper. During the workshop Hannah will also discuss the risks and vulnerabilities of making work which draws upon your own experiences.
Taking place on Zoom, this interactive workshop can facilitate a maximum of 20 participants who will be able to be heard and seen throughout.
This event is part of our First Stages Festival - a celebration of storytelling and playwriting.
The Traverse Theatre is funded by Creative Scotland and The City of Edinburgh Council, with additional support from The Scottish Government Performing Arts Venues Relief Fund.
