Year 2 student selected for playwriting course

Date: 14 November 2011

Beth Cortese, a 2nd Year English, Creative Writing and Practice student, was the youngest of 8 winners of the 'Enter Stage Write' Northwest Playwrights Competition, who were selected to attend a playwriting course at the Storey Institute, Lancaster.

Entrants to the competition were asked to submit one scene from a play involving three characters and a single Wellington boot, and Beth was selected for the course on the basis of this submission.

Beth says that she is very much enjoying the playwriting course, as it is giving her the opportunity to work alongside professional actors and writers, and to gain insight into the playwriting process.

The Storey runs various courses and workshops on writing, and these can be viewed at
