A professional development course encouraging writers to think big
Old Vic Playwriting is a training programme led by playwright, Ella Hickson.
Six early career writers (18+) will take part in eight two-hour sessions, across 12 weeks, exploring how to write for big stages.
The programme will include: studying existing plays, debating what makes for a successful big play, and writing exercises aimed at developing dramaturgical skills.
Writers who choose to write a new play whilst taking part in the course, will receive dramaturgical feedback on their draft from an established dramaturg.
All participants will receive £1000 to support their writing time.
