Write to Play is a paid year-long new writing course for D/deaf and disabled writers run by award-winning theatre company Graeae.

With the programme now in its fifth year, Graeae is partnering with five acclaimed theatre companies, to offer BAME D/deaf and disabled playwrights nationwide the opportunity to develop their writing skills. Throughout the programme, you’ll be mentored and supported to participate in workshops led by theatre professionals to hone and develop your writing. You’ll write two short pieces, as well as a full length play.

If you’re passionate about theatre, keen to write for the stage and gain experience, they want to hear from you!
