The Writers Studio Group is a brand-new, free playwriting course for aspiring playwrights based in Bradford or the surrounding areas. We want to find new, original and distinctive voices from our region who are interested in writing for the stage. To do this we are offering a friendly and supportive group to in which participants learn new writing skills, explore new ideas and get expert advice from leading industry professionals.

The Writers Studio Group is an introductory course, so you may have had some previous experience in writing for the stage, you may have had some experience in writing in other forms, you may be a theatre artist wanting to expand your practice or you may not have any previous experience at all. What we do ask of group member is that they are serious about developing themselves as playwrights, are passionate about telling new contemporary stories and want their voices to be heard.

The course will be led by Freedom Studios Creative Lead, Graeme Thompson and will have guest workshops from Usman Mullan- BBC Writers, Vinay Patel (An Adventure – Bush Theatre, Murdered by My Father – BBC, Dr Who – BBC), Kamal Kaan (Amma – Tara Theatre, Winter Tale – Northern Broadsides, Aaliyah: After Antigone – Freedom Studios) Karim Khan (Brown Boys Swim – The North Wall, All Creatures – Ch5/PBS), and Hannah Kumari (Devi – देवी – Sky Arts, Eng-Er-Land – Edward Alleyn Theatre).
