As part of the Punjab to The Potteries project, Playwright Sarah Bedi wrote the new short play When You Ask. Newly commissioned by Appetite and New Vic Theatre, the play is inspired by the stories of people in Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme.
Sarah now wants to share that experience to inspire others in their creative writing endeavours. Sarah will share not only the process of drawing on real stories to create something new, she will also talk about the profound connections she felt during her research.
During the practical part of the evening, Sarah will guide you through exercises and techniques that you can use during your own writing process.
We are sure that Sarah’s unique perspective will give you some excellent know-how to help you find and craft your next story.
Please note that this is an introductory workshop. There will be no finished piece of work completed ion the evening.
