The Fizzy Sherbet Podcast is co-hosted by Lily McLeish, Josephine Starte and Tamara von Werthern. Each episode consists of a short play, an interview with the writer, a note from the director on why they chose to direct the piece and a chat with a special guest. Fizzy Sherbet provides a platform for womxn writers and directors and connects creatives from around the globe. 

We are offering creative writing workshops, led by Fizzy Sherbet's Sandra Theresa Buch (Head of Dramatic Writing at DDSKS) and Fizzy Sherbet co-founder Tamara von Werthern (playwright and team member of Nick Hern Books). Our next workshop on the theme of FINDING YOUR VOICE will take place on 20 May 2021, and you can book your ticket here. It's open to female-identifying and non-binary writers based anywhere in the world.
