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.
