Adult Workshops

WriteWest provides free playwriting workshops every month for adults without professional theatre experience. These cover a wide range of skills and are led by leading theatre-makers. They take place in venues across Devon, Gloucestershire and Somerset.

Bursaries to cover travel costs are available for each workshop for people who are in financial need and/or have specific mobility or access requirements. To apply for a bursary, please send us a letter of not more than 200 words explaining why you need a bursary and including your relevant travel information/costs. Please send applications as part of your request for a place on a workshop, and no later than one week before the date of the workshop you wish to join.

We will list the next available workshops on this page. Please do not contact us asking for them in advance; sign up to the mailing list to hear when they are announced.
