YOUNG COLLECTIVE WEEKENDER WORKSHOPS: 

Autobiographical Writing Workshop with Naomi Sumner Chan
Date: Saturday 27 November
Time: 11.00am-1.00pm


A two-hour writing for performance workshop aimed at playwrights, poets, performers and theatre-makers who want to make autobiographical work or use experiences from their own lives as inspiration for a performance. Naomi will lead a series of exercises where writers will explore their own identity and mine their memories to generate material which will be turned into a short monologue or performance poem that's unique to the writer. All levels welcome, no writing experience.
