Clint's in trouble - again. But this time it's serious. A fight and a funeral later and he's on the run. Can Clint redeem himself... with horse?

Explore creativity, story structure and your own writing in this unique workshop. The Last Big One workshops allows students to explore a work in process, revealing the techniques of story writing and building confidence in their own voices.

Informed by my studies at Cardiff University in The Teaching And Practice of creative writing from Cardiff University (MA Distinction), my workshops are based on a combination of practical experience as a script, story and novel writer and my academic interest in the field of creative writing. With all students, of all abilities, ages and interests, my objective is always to give confidence and encourage participants to explore, experiment and write.

TESTIMONIAL FROM BBC WEBSITE

'Delivering Drama From Scratch'

Students from Cardiff have met the challenge of writing,
performing and recording a podcast drama in one day.
The youngsters aged 16 to 20 from Coleg Glan Hafren
were set the task to mark the 30th anniversary of Roald
Dahl's Tales of the Unexpected TV series.
Artists
collective the Podcast Playground invited them to write
a short audio play with twists and turns like those of the
Cardiff-born author.
"This podcast project is the best way
of learning ever!" said Benji Kendell.'
