How to Write Everything - A masterclass by Visiting Professor David Quantick

Wednesday, March 18, 2020 12:00 - 13:30
Time Zone: Europe/London
Local Time: Wednesday, March 18, 2020 12:00 - 13:30

In this masterclass, Visiting Professor David Quantick, will talk about every aspect of writing, from having an idea to getting the idea out into the world and getting paid for it, too. It covers everything from journalism to screen-writing, from speeches to sketches, from sitcoms to novels.

As a television writer, David Quantick has honed his skills on some of the biggest programmes to grace our screens.

From The Thick of It and The Day Today, to Brass Eye and TV Burp, to name but a few, David has become one of the most prolific and critically acclaimed screen writers of recent years.

Now, the 58-year-old has just earned himself another accolade after taking up a Visiting Professorship with the University of Sunderland.

It means students at the University will get the opportunity to learn first-hand from a writer who has been at cutting edge of comedy, television, music, fiction and non-fiction writing for a generation.

Read more about David here.

This masterclass is open to students, staff and the general public.

No need to book, just turn up.

Location: Prospect 009, Sir Tom Cowie Campus at St Peter's, St Peter's Way, Sunderland SR6 0DD
