TUESDAY 14 JULY - SPOTLIGHT ON: BURN BRIGHT


Tori Allen-Martin


Burn Bright is a not-for-profit organisation that seeks to champion women writers and level the playing field wherever possible - creating a network and opportunities to build writers up, lobbying for change, and calling out inequality and bad practise where they see it.


Since Burn Bright's formation, writers Tori Allen-Martin and Sarah Henley have launched three initiatives: Time Bank, to connect writers who identify as women with industry professionals willing to offer mentorship, feedback and advice on a variety of topics affecting playwrights; Connect, a series of online panel discussions providing invaluable tools for professional and personal development and Better in Person, five short plays by five fantastic women written for and set on a Zoom call.


Supporters of Burn Bright include actor, Sharon D. Clarke, playwright Morgan Lloyd Malcom and director, actor and writer, Susie McKenna.


Tori is an actor/writer/singer-songwriter, named as one of the BBC's New Talent Hotlist 2017 and nominated for an Off West End Award for Most Promising Playwright.


In this session, she'll be discussing: creating truthful, authentic work, putting on your own work and letting go of perfectionism as well as sharing some updates and insights on Burn Bright's current and upcoming projects.
