Corporate Creative Writing Classes - The Lyric Theatre



Corporate Creative Writing Classes

The Lyric Theatre


Employees will take part in a project aimed at skills development, helping them develop the art of creative writing. Working with the Lyric Theatre’s award-winning literary department, these virtual classes aim to deliver Great Writing and Corporate Creativity, in the development of a short play or a number of short plays.
The Corporate Creative Writing Classes can be delivered over 5-6 weeks, according to requirements.
