heatr Genedlaethol Cymru (the national Welsh-language theatre) are leading on a new venture – Grŵp Awduron Newydd (New Writers’ Group). The New Writers’ Group is open to writers of every age and from all parts of Wales and beyond writing in the Welsh language – people who are eager to explore, experiment and develop their craft. Maybe some will be experienced writers in other media but fancy venturing into the theatre world. Maybe others already work in the theatre but are keen to try their hand at writing. And maybe others have had some experience in theatre writing but feel they need a helping hand in taking their next steps.
They are especially keen to encourage applications from groups that have been under-represented in the arts – disabled people, women, people from BAME backgrounds, and those from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
The New Writers’ Group is a Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru initiative presented in association with S4C, Literature Wales, Pontio, Theatr Clwyd, Aberystwyth Arts Centre, Carmarthenshire Theatres, Wales Millennium Centre and the Sherman Theatre.
