The Middle Child Writers’ Group- introduction to playwriting, led by Tom Wells.

The Middle Child Writers’ Group offers a free introduction to playwriting, led by associate artist and Hull-based writer, Tom Wells.

You don’t need to have written anything before, you just need to have a few good stories to tell – funny stories, sad stories, tough stories, tender stories – stories we’re eager to see on Hull stages.

You’ll take part in a series of five weekly workshops, in-person at the Theatre Library, focused around finding your voice as a playwright.

You will then begin work on a new play, which will receive feedback from Tom and Middle Child artistic director, Paul Smith. There will also be a sixth workshop, working with actors to bring your early texts to life.
