Fresh Ink: Hull Playwriting Festival 2024

Workshop: Generating Ideas: How to Get Started (And Not Get Lost Along the Way)

Amy Trigg

This session will be a chance to build your writers toolkit in a collaborative, relaxed and creative workshop. We’ll be generating ideas and learning how to build a strong foundation for any writing project. Bring along your questions and half finished projects – maybe going back to the beginning will help you cross the finish line.
