Traverse Young Writers

Traverse Young Writers

Traverse Young Writers is aimed at 18-25 year-olds who wish to develop their playwriting skills. It offers the opportunity to be part of a creative network, where aspiring playwrights can discuss, debate and create great new work.

This season, the Traverse Young Writers will participate in one-off workshops with 5 leading professional playwrights, whilst working with the Traverse Theatre Artistic Team.

The course will culminate in a Scratch Night of the group's work, on Sat 8 Apr, 8pm.

Fees: The cost of a 10-week course of Traverse Young Writers is £80. The Traverse is able to offer a limited number of bursaries covering the majority of the course fees for those unable to pay.

Please note, the Traverse Young Writers has a limited capacity and places shall be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
