Actions and Detail Panel
Wellington Festival - Tom Watt
Thu 13 October 2016, 19:30 – 21:30 BST
As well as enjoying a career as an actor, presenter and broadcaster, Tom Watt has worked as a writer across a full range of media: plays for a small-scale touring company, treatments for documentaries and feature films, ghosted autobiographies, official histories, football match reports for national newspapers and opinion pieces for Chinese sports websites. And those are just a small selection! Tom will discuss the challenges and the fun to be had adapting work to suit very different audiences, highlighting the differences between each medium but, at the same time, trying to settle on one or two immutable writing laws.
