I’m heading down to London to give the LFS Returning Drama masterclass that I wrote about here. Stop laughing. Yes, you. It’s real and they’ve said there’ll be biscuits.
I’ve always been wary of the whole masterclass idea because the longer I go on, the less I’m convinced I know. But putting together a little showreel to start the thing off, I realise that I’ve kicked around enough, and in a sufficiently diverse number of places and situations, to at least bring back a few travellers’ tales.
It’s a specialised part-time course for writers who’ve found their footing and want to increase their expertise. It’s not cheap, and this one’s filled up, but there are always more. I’ve spoken disparagingly about courses that purport to teach non-writers to write, but this isn’t one of those.
