London Playwrights’ Workshop launches new writer development scheme -​ London Playwrights 2020

For the third year running, London Playwrights’ Workshop will be running their January playwriting challenge #WrAP (Write a Play). During the challenge, participants are encouraged to complete a first draft of a new play within the month of January, with support, inspiration, and writing exercises sent directly to their inboxes.

Those who take part in #WrAP2020 will be invited to apply for London Playwrights’ Workshop’s new writer development scheme ​London Playwrights 2020 . Four writers will be selected for the programme, which will run throughout the year and focus on developing the plays for a rehearsed reading in London at the end of 2020. The chosen writers will receive mentorship, dramaturgical support, and playwriting masterclasses, allowing them to build on the ideas they develop during #WrAP2020.

In addition to this​, all ​applicants will receive feedback on their submissions.
