Our recent writer’s course led by tutor, Dan Allum, was a huge success (see just some of the participant feedback below). Due to overwhelming demand Dan has agreed to run a follow up, 2-day intensive course, where the participants will aim to complete their own 10-minute radio script. Spaces will be limited to 15 so competition will be fierce. Participants will be selected on a first come first served basis, so please book your place as soon as possible.

This highly practical course will not only cover essentials like; story structure, plot, creating strong characters and mastering dynamic conflict. It will also focus on the essence of powerful dialogue, the relevance of high and low stakes, building motivation and subtext, and dealing with exposition.

Dan will also spend time discussing each participant’s perceived strengths and challenges and aim to tailor the sessions to fit the individual’s needs and requirements as far as possible. As part of this course an INK director will direct 6 actors in a reading of all scripts.
