Popping Up in Bridport





Curious about writing for radio?   Not sure how to start?

What is a soundscape?  What does a radio script look like?

Not sure if your writing would work on radio?

At what point do you start the story?

How do you introduce characters?   Why is exposition a problem?

What are the BBC looking for?

Come and experiment with the specific set of writing skills you’ll need to get your work heard. We’ll examine extracts of radio plays, practise writing techniques, and you’ll learn how to create characters, atmosphere and a sense of time and place using significant sound.

10am – 3pm  Monday 15 October


Cost: £55 (£45 concs)

New for Playwrights in Lymington

New Series of Monthly Playwriting Workshops  led by Angela Street

These workshops are for playwrights and aspiring playwrights who want to meet other writers, try out new ideas, and develop their skills in a supportive atmosphere. Fun, friendly, informal, sometimes frantic.

Participants will be encouraged to produce professional standard plays suitable for submission to new writing theatres, competitions and theatre companies, as well as to local amateur theatre groups. Writers will be invited to events and opportunities arising at Salisbury Playhouse.

Angela has a MA in Scriptwriting, is an Associate Practitioner at Salisbury Playhouse, where she runs playwriting courses, and is a professional member of The National Association of Writers in Education and The Society of Women Writers and Journalists.

Being a writing course addict, Angela’s course is the best a man can get.  Not only does she give you excellent theoretical knowledge, but also equips you with fabulous solutions to your writing problems.’ Andrew (MA Directing) Warminster
