The Vault’s new writers’ programme is an 8 week practical writing course taking place at VAULT Festival 2019 (23 January – 17 March).
Who is it for: Prospective writers over the age of 18, who have never had a full-length play staged before. Absolute beginners are strongly encouraged to apply.
How does it work: Six selected participants will receive mentoring and support to draft a 60 minute piece for stage. A 10 minute extract will be guest directed, produced and performed at a showcase evening on Saturday 16th March at VAULT Festival to an audience made up of invited industry and the public.
The VAULT Festival New Writers Programme offers a total introduction to writing for stage and is therefore not a programme for people who have previously taken part in writing courses. They will start right at the beginning, introducing the basics, with the course being non-patronising and inclusive.
