    Playwrighting: Offering support to beginners and more experienced writers from idea to final draft.

    I’m Craig, a theatre director and dramaturg who has worked with some of the UK’s leading theatre companies. Our sessions will be collaborative and supportive enabling your play to reach its full potential.
    We will discuss your work in detail and I will offer a bespoke response to your script and support you in developing the work further.
    Sessions will be held online on either Skype or Zoom. I am currently offering three strands of support/tutoring:

    A One-Off Session:
    I will read your script before a one-off feedback session with constructive and practical support on how to enhance your play’s concept, story, theme, characters, and dialogue.

    Three Session Package:
    I will offer notes on a first, second, and final draft of your script in three feedback sessions. We’ll cover the same areas as in a one-off session but I will also support you with redrafting and getting your script ready to be read by industry professionals.

    From Idea to Final Draft in 10 Sessions:
    Complete support as a tutor and dramaturg from the first idea to the final draft. We’ll begin with sessions on the fundamentals of playwrighting including:
    Character
    Dialogue
    Structure
    Subtext
    Theatricality
    Then I’ll support you every step of the way in drafting your play, after which we’ll look at the best places to send your work and discuss strategies for building a sustainable career as a Playwright.

    The Tutor:
    Craig Gilbert is currently the Amplify producer at Nottingham Playhouse (The Stage Regional Theatre of The Year 2019) where he supports the development of new work and new artists.
    Prior to this, he was the New Works Associate at the Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse where he acted as the in house dramaturg for the award-winning Everyman Company. He was the lead tutor on the Everyman Playwrights Programme, students from this course have gone on to receive professional commissions and have been shortlisted for major playwrighting prizes including the Bruntwood Prize and Verity Bargate Award.
    Craig has also worked as a director and dramaturg with some of the UK’s leading companies including Soho Theatre, the Royal Court, and the Young Vic.

    Impeccable French: private classes tailored for you
    Whether you'd like to sharpen your style, perfect your oral skills, prepare an exam or just start from scratch, I'd be glad to walk you through the jungle of the French language. My methods are based on listening, dialog and creativity: they adjust to match your needs, goals and interests may you be looking for help with academic French at school, conversational French, or writing tips (you name it!) You can count on lots of videos, podcasts, articles, songs, fiction and non fiction texts, photos, art pieces, social media posts, TV series, etc. as well as oral and written homemade exercises, tests, etc. to go on at your own pace with autonomy. I am there to make you feel comfortable and confident and help you reveal your linguistic and literary skills in a relaxed and playful atmosphere. Your questions, doubts and mistakes will be the engine of the classes. I studied Modern Literature and Creative Writing in Paris and I have tutored students of all ages and proficiency since 2017. I keep on learning as well with each and everyone of my students. Feel free to contact me! Thank you! Noémie

    From creative writing to creating artwork - a class by an academic artist and researcher
    Have you ever wondered how to create artwork? What are the inspiration sources and processes that lead to thinking, sketching, and developing ideas for a visual work? How to understand your own thoughts and express them in a creative way, through writing and/or drawing? This course will provide you with this knowledge and practice! With this course, under the guidance of an experienced academic artist and researcher, you will develop theoretical, but, most of all, practical skills and tools for creating your own artwork: from a thought to a visual result. The focus of this course is on creative writing exercises and artistic methods such as drawing, aquarelle, collage, photography, video art, and other multimedia. This will allow you to better understand practices of contemporary art and to participate from your own home. We will create beautiful texts and poems, expressive sketches and creative maps, illustrative paintings, and photos. The classes are tailored based on the student's needs and wishes, which means different creative exercises. After creative writing, when we reach the visual process, the introduction and guidance for the practical skill of the desired medium will be offered. This class is offered to anyone, no matter the level they have. As an artist with traditional art education, and contemporary art research degree, I believe I can help you regardless if it's for your own practice and interests, or if it's for an academic guidance.
