Theatre Royal Brighton young writers’ programme open for submissions (16-25 year olds, £80 course fee)

Are you 16 – 25 years old and passionate about writing?This course, led by playwright & director Dinos Aristidou, will give 20 young writers the opportunity to develop their writing and experience what it is to write for, in and about theatre. Sessions are 10am – 12.30pm on alternate Saturdays between September 2014 – May 2015 and will finish with a ‘showing’ of work during Brighton Fringe Festival.

As a Theatre Royal Brighton Young Writer you will have the opportunity to:

  • Receive mentoring from Dinos Aristidou
  • Meet industry professionals and get industry news and information about writing opportunities and funding
  • See Theatre Royal Brighton shows at a discounted rate.
  • Receive a years free membership to New Writing South
  • Call yourself a Theatre Royal Brighton Young Writer on publicity for your own work, independent of the project

How to apply: submit a maximum of two A4 sides of creative writing on a subject of your choice. This can be in script format, or could be a short story or poem.

Email your work to or post to New Writing South, 9 Jew Street, Brighton BN1 1UT

What we want to see is creative flair – no prior experience of writing is needed.

This is a subsidised programme and the fee is £80 for successful applicants. A limited number of bursaries may be available.
