The motivation: your comments

Getting in the right frame of mind

THIS IS the most important chapter in The Edinburgh Fringe Survival Guide. Get the motivation right and everything else you do will flow naturally. If you get it wrong – or simply don't understand it – then you're building problems for yourself from the start.

Helping explain what this means are expert voices including Kath Mainland, chief executive of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society, Kate McGrath, producer of Fuel, Toby Gough, international theatre director, Ella Hickson, Fringe First-winning playwright, Marlene Zwickler, artist manager and Nica Burns, director of the Edinburgh Comedy Awards.

Because of its fundamental importance, this is the chapter we will return to most often throughout the book.
