The Actors Centre

Monthly Writers Drop-in

Following on from the fortnightly writing group, this monthly drop-in class is aimed at anyone who has work they would like to be read for group feedback, or just simply want to come and observe or even discuss a possible idea. It can be for theatre, film or radio. The aim is to encourage, stimulate and support writers through a workshop approach. There will be no exercises, just a chance to hear your work read and discuss problems and ideas with the group. Previous group members have won the prestigious Verity Bargate Award, the Off Cut Festival at The Old Red Lion and had productions at The Edinburgh Festival and the Cannes Film Festival 2010 (shorts entry). Rehearsed readings of completed works regularly take place at the Actors Centre to an industry audience. Price £10
