This is an amazing opportunity you definitely won't want to miss!!

Playwright Mentoring Programme

Now in its eighteenth year, Playwrights' Studio, Scotland is delighted to offer six playwrights support through the Playwright Mentoring Programme. This support is for playwrights who have not yet had a professional production and are keen to learn more about their craft. It is a professional development opportunity for playwrights to build their playwriting skills and writing community, working towards completing a draft of a new play.

The Playwright Mentoring Programme follows an eight month structure which includes one-to-one playwright mentoring sessions, financial support, skills sessions, and opportunities to widen your creative community.

Playwright Mentoring Sessions: Six one-to-one playwright mentoring sessions with an established professional playwright, who will support you from initial idea to the first draft of a new, full-length play. This support gives you the space and time to experiment with your writing and grow in confidence as a playwright.

Financial Support: To cover seven days of your time in contact with your mentor and with Playwrights' Studio, we will pay you a rate of £150 per day. The total amount you will receive is £1,050.

To be eligible to apply for a Playwright Mentoring Programme, you should:

- Have some experience of creative writing

- Not yet have had a full professional production

- Have a specific idea you want to develop into a full-length play

- Be able to commit to an eight-month intense programme

You should also:

- Be resident in Scotland.

- Be available on 14 January 2022 for the Playwright Induction Day.

Application deadline: Monday 25th of October, 5:00 PM
