VAULT New Writers Award

Following the huge success of 2018’s VAULT New Writers Programme, the 8 week practical writing course returns for VAULT Festival 2019. This is an 8 week practical writing course taking place at VAULT Festival 2019 (23 January – 17 March) for prospective writers over the age of 18, who have never had a full-length play staged before. Absolute beginners are strongly encouraged to apply.

Six selected participants will receive mentoring and support to draft a 60 minute piece for stage. A 10 minute extract will be guest directed, produced and performed at a showcase evening on Saturday 16th March at VAULT Festival to an audience made up of invited industry and the public.

The VAULT Festival New Writers Programme offers a total introduction to writing for stage and is therefore not a programme for people who have previously taken part in writing courses. They will start right at the beginning, introducing the basics, with the course being non-patronising and inclusive.

The VAULT Festival New Writers Programme is designed and developed by playwright and screenwriter Camilla Whitehill (Where Do Little Birds Go?, Mr Incredible, Freeman) in partnership with Gillian Greer, Head of Theatre for VAULT Festival 2019.
