Calling All Budding Playwrights

EVOLVE could help you develop your playwriting skills. If you are an aspiring writer or have just started building your career as a playwright, EVOLVE would help you to hone your skills and cultivate your voice. Over several months the Playwrights’ Studio would provide you with focused script development with support from a director. You would receive advice and training to help you write a new play.

TWO WAYS TO EVOLVE (all participants must be 18 years or over) 
Places on EVOLVE will be selected through IGNITE, a national competition which is supported by INSPIRE, a series of playwriting sessions.
INSPIRE sessions will be run by Associate Playwrights David Greig, Liz Lochhead and Nicola McCartney who will suggest approaches to playwriting, share their techniques and most importantly inspire you to write for the stage.

Inspire 1:
Saturday 2 October, 2-5pm
David Greig & Liz Lochhead
Location: Glasgow

Inspire 2:
Saturday 9 October, 2-5pm
Liz Lochhead & Nicola McCartney
Location: Dundee

Inspire 3:
Saturday 6 November, 2-5pm
David Greig & Liz Lochhead
Location: Inverness

Thanks to help from the Scottish Arts Council's Lottery Fund and words@work, all places are free but are limited, so please book in advance by calling Caroline Newall on 0141 332 4403 or at caroline@playwrightsstudio.co.uk

Veue information available upon booking.

To enter the competition and win a place on EVOLVE, you will be required to submit a ’scene’ written to a specified brief by 10 January 2005. If you are successful you will be entered into Evolve and your winning scene developed over six months, into a play. The resulting plays will be given a rehearsed reading to theatre professionals and select public groups in summer 2005.
