2. Write Longer
Want an opportunity to share a new one-act play with other writers? What about having the play read by actors, in a safe space? Or workshop it with dramaturgs and theatre companies?
That’s what Write Longer is all about.
We’ll be running 6 workshops in spring and summer 2019. At least 6 writers will get to hear their play read at each workshop – up to 40 writers in total. As our actors read your play, Just Write mentors and dramaturgs will share ideas, advice, and guidance on how to develop your script to the next stage.
But that’s not all…
Artistic leads from Alphabetti Theatre, The Six Twenty and Coracle will be talent-spotting at each workshop, looking for scripts to turn into productions. 3 writers will win a £500 commission to develop their play, ahead of a professional production by one of the companies later in the year.
Write Longer is a hot-house for developing new plays and new creative relationships. If you have an existing creative relationship with Alphabetti Theatre, or have completed the Write Something course, then you can submit your one-act play for consideration. You must have a complete draft of the play by the submission deadline to be considered.
- Spring workshops – 26th April, 27th April or 28th April, 10am to 6pm
- Summer workshops – 31st May, 1st June or 2nd June, 10am to 6pm
