Are you between 16 and 25 years old and interested in being a writer?

It doesn’t matter whether you have written a play before or not. If you’re full of ideas and have always dreamed of bringing them to life we would love to work with you.

The National Theatre of Scotland has worked with hundreds of young theatre makers through its Exchange programme. We’re looking to build on the success of this by opening up our doors to aspiring young writers as well.

The Young Writers’ Day will involve a whole day working on your writing skills with full-time writer Rob Drummond (Mr Write, Bullet Catch) and George Aza-Selinger, the National Theatre of Scotland’s Literary Manager. We will talk about writing techniques, find ways to unlock the ideas you’ve always wanted to put down on paper, and give everyone a chance to see some of their work brought to life.

We will also be on hand for career advice and any other questions. The National Theatre of Scotland’s Learning and Outreach Manager Gillian Gourlay will be there on the day to listen to your views on how we’re doing and you can have your say about how we could possibly make the Young Writer’s Day a regular event in the future.

About National Theatre of Scotland

In its short life, the National Theatre of Scotland has already earned a significant national and international reputation for its daring and originality. The National Theatre of Scotland was established in 2006 and has created over 200 productions. Being a theatre without walls and building-free, the Company presents a wide variety of work that ranges from large-scale productions to projects tailored to the smallest performing spaces. In addition to conventional theatres, the Company has performed in airports, schools, tower blocks, community halls, ferries and forests. The National Theatre of Scotland creates much of its work in partnership with theatre-makers, companies, venues and participants across the globe. From extraordinary projects with schools and communities, to the ground-breaking online 5 Minute Theatre to landmark pieces such as The James Plays by Rona Munro - the National Theatre of Scotland’s aspiration is to tell the stories that need to be told and to take work to wherever audiences are to be found.
