What else do I need to know?

It is completely free!

You do not need to have lots of knowledge or experience of marketing – just a keen interest in finding out more!

The sessions run on a weekly basis.

On occasions you may be invited other events outside of the usual session times, such as press nights, watching rehearsals or meeting community groups in Storyhouse. These are optional.

Some of the work that you agree to create will be done outside of the sessions and you will be able to keep in touch with each other over our designated channel on Slack, an easy-to-use and free messaging service.

We have a Safe Space Code of Conduct that you can find here. If you think anything is missing or could be made clearer let us know!
