Our Year 10 playwrights have continued to draft and edit their plays for the National Theatre’s playwright competition, ‘New Views’. This week, our partner writer, Matt Hartley, attended one-to-one sessions with each student to provide individual feedback on first drafts. Advice was given on staging, actors and movement and the writing process itself.
Students have diverse ideas that reflect issues and ideas pertinent to them. This creative and critical thinking has really empowered our participants to visualize their concept and bring it to life with words. The writers are now busy writing at home, completing the final drafts ready for submission. Deadlines are now looming in April so fingers crossed for our aspiring writers who are the only Welsh writers entered in the National competition.
