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.

The course runs in two bookable seasons:

  • Spring (March-May)
  • Autumn (September-December)

In Spring 2019, over 10 weeks, Traverse Young Writers will participate in one-off workshops with five leading professional playwrights, whilst working with the Traverse Theatre Artistic Team to develop their playwriting skills.

The course will culminate in a free Scratch Night of the group's work held on Saturday 18 May.

We would like to thank The Turtleton Charitable Trust, The Teale Charitable Trust, the Nimar Charitable Trust, The Steel Charitable Trust and The Gannochy Trust for their generous support of Traverse Young Writers.
