Do you have something to say?

This free playwriting course is an opportunity for writers at the beginning of their careers to develop their talent, learn how to write a script and make their voices heard. Street Voices 6 is an opportunity to say it the way you see it, without borders, without fear and without compromise.

What the course offers:

  • Full day writing workshops
  • One to one mentoring
  • Masterclasses with experienced writers
  • Support and advice from professional theatre-makers
  • Visits to see plays, events and performances
  • Workshops with professional theatre directors and actors
  • Safe and friendly environment to try out ideas

What we are looking for?

We are looking for distinctive voices and new perspectives with an ability to write and the potential to develop. You’ll need a willingness to take risks and try out new ideas along with a commitment to attend all the course dates.

You must be over 18 and based in Yorkshire. We are keen to attract writers who haven’t had the opportunity to attend a professional writer’s course before. Individuals from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds are actively encouraged to apply.

Emma Hill, a participant of Street Voices 4 and professional playwright, said ‘Attending Street Voices 4 and being selected to have my short play, Tiger, staged was an important part of my development as a writer. I went on to work with Freedom Studios to create #ChipShoptheMusical. The scheme was a big part of me developing my voice as a writer – thank you Freedom Studios.’

Dates and location:

Workshops will take place on Saturdays from 10am to 4pm between October 2016 and April 2017 at Freedom Studios in Bradford.
