November 2023 marks the 50th anniversary of the Scottish Society of Playwrights. To celebrate this significant milestone, we are delighted to launch the SSP@50 Fellowship Awards.
Designed to support playwrights to create new projects that celebrate the importance of playwriting and theatre to local communities, ten Fellowships Awards will be awarded to innovative, inspiring, boundary-stretching projects that honour, celebrate and promote playwriting in Scotland.
Delivered in partnership with venues across Scotland, each Fellow receives:
- A £4000 bursary
- Project Producer support
- Tailored personal support, which could include:
- Writing Space
- Mentoring/Dramaturgical Support
- Performance space
- Technical support
- One year of SSP membership (for Fellows who are not already members)
