Theatr Clwyd is a home for writers in Wales, offering the time and space to write within a community of fellow artists without the pressure of ‘showing’ or producing something. They offer residencies connected to our in-house productions so writers can get to know other artists working here, spend time observing rehearsals and develop ideas in a supportive environment. The Writer in Residence Scheme is generously supported by Gladstone’s Library.
The attachment includes:
- A bursary to cover travel, subsistence and expenses
- Accommodation at the nearby Gladstone’s Library (a beautiful Grade I listed building and the only Prime Ministerial Library in Britain)
- Use of the Writers’ Room
- Optional feedback on any work in progress
- The potential to work with actors on any work in progress
- The opportunity to deliver a workshop in writing for theatre with Theatr Clwyd’s company for young people.
The theatre’s intention is that these attachments will form the beginning of a relationship with Theatr Clwyd and a network of writers who can call their theatre home. In 2018, they will be offering three residencies connected to the in-house productions. They are now opening applications for two of these residencies.
