Opportunities: Our Pick of the Week – Criterion New Writing Programme

Each week we look through our pile of writing opportunities to pick out one we think is particularly worth your time. It could be an innovative brief, great prize money, a high-profile company, or just plain fun.

This week’s pick: Criterion New Writing Programme

Description: The Criterion New Writing Programme is targeted at helping writers learn to write for the West End stage, and combines sessions on narrative structure with opportunities to see your life brought to work by actors on the Criterion Stage.

So, what’s so great about it?  Full disclosure: I’ve done this course, so this week the recommendation is personal!  The course actually meets on the Criterion Stage, putting you in the mindset quite literally for thinking about writing for a West End stage.  The small group environment and focused workshops mean you’ll get lots of personal attention.  And reimbursements for travel expenses are available, meaning funding issues won’t keep anyone away.  Applications close on 1 December, so get your application in asap if you want to grab a spot!
