WORKSHOP: THE WRITER’S TOOLKIT
SATURDAY 15 MAY / 1PM-2:30PM
The journey to a final draft isn’t always easy. In this practical masterclass, Paul Kalburgi, author of The Writer’s Toolkit, shares tips, tricks and ideas for getting inspired, staying motivated and crashing through ‘writer’s block’ – delivered through a range of exercises designed to help writers generate ideas and stay focused.
Welcome to my website. I am a British playwright, screenwriter, and television producer based in Auckland, New Zealand.
My plays have been staged in London, New York and Dallas. I am perhaps best known for my work in verbatim theatre, with my drama In The Tall Grass (Bishop Arts Theatre Center, Dallas) winning Outstanding New Play in the DFW Theatre Critics Forum Awards 2018. In contrast, my popular dark comedy Almost The Birthday Party (Etcetera Theatre, London) continues to be licensed by theatre companies internationally.
Recent screenwriting work includes the 2020 bio-doc, Clint Eastwood: Hollywood Outlaw (Reelz Channel, USA), hit docudrama series The Price of Fame (Reelz Channel, US / Channel 5, UK) and New Zealand soap opera Shortland Street (TVNZ). As a TV producer, I have created content for networks in the UK and USA across a variety of genres.
I am proud to be a member of the Dramatists Guild of America, where I currently serve as New Zealand Ambassador.
My book The Writer's Toolkit is now available

IN THE TALL GRASS
“There is a sense of urgency about this project that we couldn't ignore, especially given our political climate. A project of this magnitude very seldom comes along in a theatre’s lifespan.”
