Sussex Playwrights presents:
An evening with William Nicholson
Thank you to William Nicholson, our Honorary President and special guest at last night’s Sussex Playwrights
William gave terrific insights into the reality of being a novelist, playwright and A-list screenwriter, his personal practice, including developing self discipline and lifelong writing habits, the stages of getting a film from first talks to release, the process of raising a budget for a self-directed feature and how the industry really works.
He also shared the personal impact that feedback, reviews and the awards process can have on the writer.
The event concluded with audience Q&A, networking and drinks in a room packed with writers, actors and drama makers.
William also directs and his new film Hope Gap, based on his Tony award-nominated play The Retreat from Moscow and partly filmed in Sussex, will be released next year
