On the PhD front, I'm in discussion with another University and have the go ahead for a full application.
In regards to getting out and about, I attended LSF Accelerate - you can read the blog post here. In general, it was great value for money - thanks to Chris and Judy - meeting quite a few Producers as well as catching up with TC 5ers and seeing some great talks.
This weekend, I'm going to the Inward Eye Screenwriters weekend in Ambleside. A blog will follow. So far, I don't have many other workshops or events planned. Oh, I'm gong to the Q&A for Monos with Rachel Randall, Lecturer in Hispanic Media and Digital Communications at UOB and Humberto Perez-Blanco, Senior Lecturer in Film Studies at UWE.
I didn't make the final 5 of the Bristol Old Vic's Open Session, but it does appear that I have made the shortlist as I will be getting a workshop next year. I'll be working on extending AGOTH to full length but working on something else for the workshop, probably Loud Mouth.
I got a No from Delta and the Oxford Playmaker course run by John Retallack. Hit Points is still with several public theatres so should hear back soonish.
