“It has challenged me, given me confidence, and, without it, I wouldn’t be calling myself a writer today.”
The Writers is a practical course that encourages you to develop your own writing style whilst discovering some fundamental skills about writing plays. Working alongside award-winning professional writers, you will explore techniques in characterisation, writing dialogue and story structure as well as discussing work by a variety of playwrights.
Over the course of the year, you will meet other professional writers, write a monologue that will be performed in The Great Hall at the Royal Exchange, receive feedback and support on your work and have the option to write a full-length play.
“I loved getting to discuss theatre with people my own age who are just as excited about it as I am. It's also such a rare opportunity to get to talk to professional writers and get their feedback.”
