Experience Opportunity

Introduction to Playwriting groups

What are the Introduction to Playwriting Groups?

An opportunity for writers with little or no experience and lots of raw talent and big ideas to think more deeply about writing for theatre alongside a group of their peers, guided by experienced, produced playwrights.

Will the group teach me how to write a play?

NO! We can’t teach you to write a play, this is not a course, toolkit or instruction manual, but what we can offer you, is an insight into the approach & practices of one of our leading playwrights over 8 group sessions and an invitation to write in the most courageous way you can, whilst being supported by the lead writer and the other group members.

What happens at the end of the group?

The writers are invited to submit a play and offered detailed feedback from the playwright/s leading the group and the literary team.

Applicants must be aged 18 or over and based in the UK or Ireland.
