503- Autumn Writers Programme

The new 503 Studio returns with an incredible line up of courses, masterclasses, 1-2-1 dramaturgy sessions, open talks, and taster sessions, led by some of the countries brightest and best writers, including 503 Alumni as well as the 503 team.

The Autumn Writers Programme will be delivered online. However, where there is demand they will also offer in person sessions later in the year where possible.

503 have committed a significant portion of their Arts Council England Emergency Grant to offer free and subsidized places to anyone struggling financially at the moment including long term unemployed/those on benefits, and anyone affected as a result of the impact of Covid-19 this year. If you would like to enquire about a particular course and hear more about our Share The Drama scheme, please get in touch with them.
