Emerging Writers Table

Alongside the ATC Youth Company and Youth Associates programmes, the Emerging Writers Table offerplaywrights the opportunity to create a full-length work over the span of 10 months.

This programme offers six emerging playwrights a guided process across eight curated writing sessions from February to November 2024. Each participant will create a full-length play for performers aged 16-25. This group provides an opportunity to reflect, learn, hear feedback from peers and gain deeper understanding of the playwriting craft and creative process.

Going beyond the basics of ‘writing a play’, these sessions will push participants to question, collaborate, and gain a deeper understanding of the playwriting landscape locally, nationally and internationally. We’ll touch on the basics and delve into what makes a great play tick. What’s worked for writers of the past? What’s working for writers today, now, in this moment of our own theatrical culture? And what works for you? This group is a space to figure that out (or at least get a damn sight closer).
