Work with me

Collaboration

I love working with other creatives and I'm always on the look out for collaborators, whether that's makers, actors, directors, producers, designers... if my work aligns with your work, I'd love to have a chat.

Dramaturgy

As well as writing and making theatre, I also support other writers to realise their work for stage. My work as a dramaturg is informed by 10+ years experience working with writers. I was Graeae’s Literary Manager for 5 years, and before that worked in the new writing department at the Royal Court Theatre.
"Working with Chloe was an amazing experience, her versatility and approach to her craft is what makes her so special as a Dramaturg. Chloe can be relied upon to bring out the best in an artist's vision and help guide it to where it needs to be. I would highly recommend her for anyone who takes their work seriously and wants to make it the very best it can be” – Birmingham Rep Foundry Artist

Teaching and facilitation

I’ve taught playwriting to undergraduates, young people, D/deaf and disabled writers, homeless communities and prisoners. My workshops are appropriate for writers just starting out and cover craft topics such as structure, character, action, dialogue, as well as taking a playful approach to theatricality, writing/making process and how an individual’s writing can interact creatively with access tools such as
BSL and audio description.
“Woaw, such a brilliant workshop. [Chloe] instantly made us feel at home and free to experiment while dropping some real gems of advice. Not sure where two hours went – absolutely flew by!”
“An excellent course. Enlightening! Well delivered”
“Chloe’s course more than met my expectations, it’s done something for my spirit!”

Script consultancy

I've offered feedback to hundreds of writers through my career. I’ve read for theatres such as the Royal Court, Synergy Theatre Project and Theatre503 and prizes such as Bruntwood Prize and Koestler Awards.
My script consultancy service works with individual writers to design a bespoke framework for moving their work forward, building milestones, accountability and opportunity for reflection into a structured process of 1:1 support that involves feedback. For more information, please email me direct. 

TV, Film & Radio

I'm interested in growing my work in these mediums. Please contact my agent Davina Shah for more information or to request sample scripts.
 
If you’re interested in collaborating, booking me for a workshop, or working with me as a script consultant or dramaturg, just drop me an email, it would be great to hear from you.
