HighTide and the New Wolsey Theatre are inviting emerging writers to the New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich on Sunday 18th June to participate in a day of workshops and exercises centered around writing new work for the stage. The day will be led by HighTide Associate Director Andy Twyman. The academy will be a chance for local writers to meet one another and exchange ideas and tips on writing new work.
After the academy, writers will be encouraged to create a new short play and submit it to HighTide. Five of these plays will then be selected to be performed as readings at HighTide Festival 2017 in September by members of the New Wolsey Young Company. The five selected writers will also be provided with a festival pass to the HighTide Festival in Aldeburgh.
If you would like to take part in the academy weekend, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, this opportunity is aimed at writers from the East Anglia region and we can only accept applications from writers based in the region.
