Ep 9 – Stefanie Moore – The Mentoring Experience The WFTS Podcast

We talk to Stefanie Moore, writer of Blue Lines (performed at Greater Manchester Fringe Festival 2019).  Stef applied to The Hive for a mentoring opportunity, supported by Arts Council England. Tim Firth was her appointed mentor. We talk to Stef about the experience: about the process of being mentored, as well as how to be a good mentee.  We talk about how to take feedback and how to develop a script from the initial idea, up until it goes live in front of an audience.  Presented by Mike Heath and Stephen M Hornby.
