Playwrights’ Studio, Scotland is delighted to once again offer six playwrights support through the Playwright Mentoring Programme. This support is for playwrights who have not yet had a professional production and are keen to learn more about their craft. It is a professional development opportunity for playwrights to build their playwriting skills and writing community, working towards completing a draft of a new play.
The Playwright Mentoring Programme follows an eight-month structure which includes one-to-one playwright mentoring sessions, financial support, case study sessions, and opportunities to widen your creative community.
To cover seven days of your time in contact with your mentor and with Playwrights’ Studio, they will pay you a rate of £150 per day. The total amount you will receive is £1,050. Payment will occur monthly, after each mentoring session has taken place.
To be eligible to apply for a Playwright Mentoring Programme, you should:
Have some experience of creative writing
Not yet have had a full professional production
Have a specific idea you want to develop into a full-length play
Be able to commit to an eight-month intense programme
You should also:
Be resident in Scotland or from Scotland and living elsewhere
Be available on 20th January 2023 for the Playwright Induction Day
They are unable to accept applications from playwrights who:
Are in full-time formal education (i.e. 16 hours or more per week) at the start of the Playwright Mentoring Programme.
Have directly received support from Playwrights’ Studio in the previous 18 months (this doesn’t include attending workshops or groups)
