About the Workshops
Run by Lisa Nicoll, playwright and Creative Director of In Motion, this workshop is fun, informative and has a people-centred approach. As a playwright Lisa has thought long and hard about where the stumbling blocks are when writing and the key thing is often to have someone or a group to support the work to move forward and keep motivated. Lisa uses a human-based approach and often links with how we ourselves act and live in our everyday life and respond and react to the work around us.

The best tool we have as a writer is ourselves and the world around us and this is what can make a story and play individual. There is often no original idea but is about the take on the world that a person has that makes their story different and this workshop will help support and unlock this.

The short podcast available after the workshop is there to keep you motivated and inspired as we often need that boost and unlocking of inspiration.
