Theatre503 Literary Team Takeover: 503 Studio – summer events for writers

The 503 Literary Team is taking over Theatre503 for two weeks this summer (August 5 – 16), introducing the 503Studio, which features a series of week long courses, masterclasses and 1-2-1 dramaturgy sessions from the team, 503 Alumni and friends.

There’s something for everyone – from an introduction to playwriting, prompts to get you writing to how to end your play. Thanks to Dynamis’ support of our Share the Drama Scheme – they also have bursary places for every session available for long term unemployed/those on benefits. Details of how to get in touch about that are on each event’s website.

They will also be announcing a series of evening open forum discussions (free to those who book any 503Studio event) covering a range of topics including how to produce your work and future life – more info will be coming up on their website. In the meantime, below is an outline of the two week at 503 – with a link to each session.
