LISTEN LOCAL YOUNG WRITERS PROGRAMME

Write your first short play with workshops, masterclasses and mentoring at Kiln Theatre

We are looking for the future generation of writers. Ten young people will be selected and paid to develop their writing skills for live performance. They will collaborate with industry experts and artists to create their own short piece which will be performed by professional actors.

We have created a course where you are entitled to express your points of view and realise your story. You don’t have to have written anything before, but if you have something to say, we want to hear it. All writing that you do as part of the programme will belong to you.

This programme is for first-time writers aged 18-30 who live, learn or earn in Brent. Writers will be paid at London Living Wage to take part in all workshops.

Sign up to take part in a taster workshop here where you will participate in exercises to help us select the final 10 participants. Apply by Sunday 5 September 2021.

Taster workshops: Late September and early October 2021 (specific dates TBC)

Writing workshops: Thursdays from 28 October – 25 November 2021 and 6-20 January 2022

Play readings in February 2022
