Writing For Stage & Screen

With Chris Hoyle






Chris Hoyle

Chris began writing some time ago after training

as an actor and spending several successful

years on stage and screen. His passion for words

has grown and he is now one of Manchester's

most recognised writers regularly writing for Take

Back as well as Superbia. Chris has worked with

MAP several times on Projects and his writing

was used in the MAP Rep Showcase. This is the

second writing course MAP have run with Chris

and in this years Manchester Fringe, two of the

pieces created on this 6 week block were brought

to fruition with runs at 53two, to great reviews.


The Workshop

The workshop takes place over 6 weeks and will take writers from conception, through development and story-building, to a piece that if not yet finished, will be in a place that the writer can take forward themselves and take to completion. The writers will be offered the chance to Showcase their work at 53two, in front of an audience to receive feedback and, most importantly, see their work on it's feet and being read by professional actors.


The group environment in which the classes take place will ensure a pooling of resources and ideas and a positive and supportive nature will mean that whether this is your first foray into writing or you're an old hand, it is the perfect place to expand and develop yourself and your work.
