8th May: Sitcom Workshop

Hastings Writers Group was very fortunate to welcome local script writer, poet, producer and performer John Knowles. He presented a workshop on writing comedy, sharing very funny stories of his own life and experiences. We were treated to videos of performances some of John’s work. These showed how easy it is to make people laugh – if you happen to be extremely talented, intelligent and blessed with a sharp, sometimes dark, sense of humour. John gave us some useful tools to help us prepare for our forthcoming sit-com writing competition. These included advice on character and plot set-ups as well as some practical tips relating to script writing and the best reference books and computer software available. Members were entertained and inspired in equal measure.
