Great news for all aspiring playwrights, whatever your level of experience. Applications for the Royal Court’s Introduction to Playwriting groups are now open and close at midday on Wednesday 26 June.
This is a myth-busting introduction to theatre writing, led by writers currently associated with the Royal Court. Running one evening a week for eight weeks, there are three separate intakes starting in August and October this year, and January 2020. All you need to have is an interest in writing and the thirst to write a play. At the end of the course participants are encouraged to submit a play for feedback from Royal Court readers.
Places are assigned based on potential; writers are not expected to have extensive experience of writing for stage. Application is through a short extract of written work.
There is no fee for attending the course, and The Royal Court say that they are often able to help successful applicants with travel costs into London too, so don’t let your location put you off.
This could be the break you have waited for. Make sure you apply! Details here
