Experience Opportunity

BOP Writers

BOP Writers is a collective space where playwrights of any level of experience will be able to come together to share their work with a supportive group of like-minded individuals. The sessions will be facillitated by autistic playwright Nelly Kelly.

This group will be a friendly place where you can try out different writing tasks to develop your skills and get feedback, thoughts and supportive criticism on what you’ve written and give the same to others.

This will be a group where it’s safe to try new things with your writing and to chat with other disabled writers about what works for them and what they’ve learned.

DEADLINE TO APPLY: 8am, Monday 30 January 2023

Playwrights with any level of experience are welcome at the BOP Writers. You may have written a number of plays or you may be at the very start of writing your first play – but you must have a keen interest in writing for the stage.

If you are a writer of other artforms (such as literature or poetry) then this writers group is not for you.

Other eligibility criteria include:

- You must identify as D/deaf, disabled and/or neurodivergent

- You must have a home base in Scotland

- You must be aged over 18, by Monday 13th March 2023

- People in full or part time education are eligible to apply

You must fit the above eligibility criteria to join the BOP Writer’s Group
