Event description
Want to know how to pitch your ideas with ease and confidence?

About this event

As playwrights, we have to pitch in many different ways: from an interview for a writer development programme to a meeting with a producer to a friend asking ‘what are you writing at the moment?’

During this two hour session , LPW Director Kimberley Andrews will work through a range of practical exercises designed to build your confidence and polish up your pitch.

Throughout the workshop, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to pitch your ideas in different ways; you’ll look at the differences in approaches to pitching – from loglines to blurbs to simply having a conversation about your play (as you might with a Literary Manager). Through group feedback, you’ll improve your pitching skills and gain some new insights into your idea.

Why is pitching important?

A good pitch is about more than trying to sell your play; it’s also about making sure you have a solid idea that you are confident is well-developed. And it’s being able to speak about that idea with passion and conviction. It’s also about more than a few catchy sentences, you’ll need to be able to answer the questions, which will inevitably be thrown at you, with ease and clarity.

There’s no doubt about it – pitching is daunting and can push even the most extrovert of writers out of their comfort zone. But it’s also essential if you want to get your work on stage! That’s where this workshop comes in…

Who this workshop is for: As long as you have an idea to pitch, this class is suitable for all levels.

Preparation: you will need to bring in a written half page pitch of your idea. Please note that without this, you’ll find it difficult to participate in some of the exercises.
