For the month of February we will delve into the world of Screen Writing. Our guest speaker and workshop host will be Alex Lodge, a Te Whanganui-a-Tara born writer of plays, performer and educator. This meeting will involve Alex discussing her journey as a writer for screen & stage followed by a screen writing workshop.
