New Writing South and Chichester Festival Theatre have teamed up for a second year to run this exciting series of workshops for young playwrights based in the south east.After a highly successful first year, we are now looking for young writers for the 2010/11 programme.
We are looking to select 16 young writers aged between 16-25 to help develop their knowledge and skills as Playwrights. Young people will work with a professional playwright to turn ideas and passion into drama in the context of a producing theatre. They will experience what it is to work in the industry and meet with other theatre professionals. Previous visiting artists have included an astonishing wealth of award-winning playwrights from Ronald Harwood, Chloe Moss, Tim Price and Judy Upton.
Please could you pass this on to any young people you think may be interested.
Deadline for applications: 5pm Friday 24 September 2010.
