We hosted our first Writing Drama workshop yesterday with tutor, Deirdre Alexander, who has more than a decade of experience writing for television and theatre. Her screen writing credits include RTE shows Fair City and Seacht.
The afternoon sped by as we learned about constructing a 3 act script, how to pitch it to a producer and got tips on how to write good drama. We also were given insight into the world of television drama. It was an information packed session and our tutor still found time to answer a barrage of questions from participants.
This may have been our first workshop on writing drama but it’s unlikely to be the last judging by the enthusiastic response it received from the participants.
