YOUNG WRITERS PROGRAMME

Your Voice. Your Stage

18-25 | London Borough of Brent

We are looking for the future generation of writers. Ten young people aged between 18-25, from Brent will be selected and paid to join a six-week course which will develop their skills of writing 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 believe your voice is the most powerful tool you have, and we want to give you a platform to allow your voice to flourish, be heard and make a lasting difference. 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.
