Luke Barnes
Fresh Ink: Hull Playwriting Festival 2024

Workshop: Luke Barnes

In this workshop with Luke Barnes, we will focus on moving your idea from an itch in the back of your brain to a fully formed, living and breathing treatment.
We’ll look at deepening your ideas, selling them to yourself and how to articulate them to other people.
