Mentored 2017

Mentoring Programme

Every year, Playwrights' Studio, Scotland selects at least six aspiring or emerging playwrights for a six month programme of mentoring, by established playwrights, to support the development of new plays. This is an opportunity to improve playwriting skills and gain valuable insight into the playwriting process and profession.

Playwrights' Studio organises a collective development day for all the selected playwrights, working with professional directors and actors. We will also organise at least one theatre trip during the six months, as well as supporting workshops and other opportunities to meet theatre and other industry professionals.

Approximately 70 playwrights have been mentored through this process, including Rob Drummond (Bullet Catch, Quiz Show); DC Jackson (The Stewarton Trilogy, My Romantic History, Threeway) and Lynda Radley (Futureproof).
