Young Company Collective: Writer's Room

  • On Tour / External

YOUNG COLLECTIVE IS OUR MEMBERSHIP SCHEME WHICH GIVES YOUNG PEOPLE AGED 14-21 OPEN-ACCESS TO WORKSHOPS AT THE ROYAL EXCHANGE THEATRE.

As part of our 2021 Young Collective Programme, we are delivering a week-long Writer’s Room Project from Monday 15 February – Friday 19 February , 10:00am – 2:00pm each day on Zoom.

If you are aged 14-21 and interested in writing for theatre, this is the course for you!

During this course, you will meet each morning for a week with a professional writer to learn and develop writing skills for stage. You will learn about research, character, form, structure and dialogue and put these skills into practice as you work towards creating a short play by the end of the week.

The Writer’s Room is open to young people of all experiences. You don’t have to have written anything before. You just need a willingness to learn and enthusiasm for putting pen to paper (or fingers to keys)!

This course is led by professional playwright Sonia Jalaly. Sonia is a writer and theatre maker from Manchester. She has devised and written work for theatres across the UK with both professional artists and young people. Sonia is currently under commission with HighTide and the Royal Exchange Theatre.

The Writer’s Room is open to members of the Young Company Collective only. To join the Young Collective, click here and purchase your membership. Once you purchase a membership, you will receive a welcome email containing a link giving you access to sign up to all that the Young Collective has to offer, from the Writer's Room course to weekly, stand-alone workshops.

Arts Pot funded places are available by emailing Isah-Levi.Roach@RoyalExchange.co.uk. The Arts Pot can cover membership or course fees if money is a barrier.
