MENA Arts & Hyphen Artist Collective: Show Up & Write

MENA Arts UK is thrilled to be collaborating with Hyphen Artist Collective and Theatro Technis @26 Crowndale to run in-person & online sessions for writers called SHOW UP & WRITE as featured in THE STAGE and BROADWAY WORLD UK.

A series of sessions where writers attend in-person or Zoom/online sessions and simply write for three hours and then come together for one hour to connect and discuss all things writing. Often our busy schedules distract us from finding time to commit to writing what we want to write. SHOW UP & WRITE gives us the chance to commit and stick to that commitment.

Writing can be a lonely pursuit; this opportunity gives us a chance to write in a community.

IN PERSON: Attend a 3-hour free-writing session at Theatro Technis (26 Crowndale Rd, NW1 1TT). Then come together for an additional hour to discuss all things writing: challenges & successes. We are capping the in-person sessions to 12 writers based on the space provided.

ZOOM: Check in at the top of the session with a wave at 1pm. Microphones off for the 3-hour writing period, but we encourage you to keep your camera on to stay on task. Then stay after for the hour discussion. Zoom sessions will be capped at 15 writers.

COST: No cost! Free to join!

WHEN: Sunday, January 21st & 28th** AND

Sunday, February 4th & 25th AND

Sunday, March 3rd & 17th.

1pm to 4pm: Writing — 4pm to 5pm: Community session/discussion

**Please note January 28th will be 11am to 3pm as there is a MENA Arts UK short film screening at 4pm

Discussions will be facilitated by MENA Arts UK Steering Group & Hyphen Artist Collective members.

HOW TO APPLY: We welcome writers with a “hyphenated” artist skill set or cultural background OR MENA+/SWANA writers to apply. We encourage Global Majority, Migrant and/or Underrepresented hyphenated artists to apply. Writers of all levels and experience are welcome.
