“The ethos behind Papatango is unique and inclusive and gives writers new to theatre a chance.” – Participant Feedback


Papatango launched GoWrite, a brand new arm for participation and engagement, in 2017. GoWrite delivers an ambitious year-round programme of in-depth playwriting workshops and education opportunities for over four thousand people each year – all completely free.

GoWrite draws directly on our professional opportunities. Participants will be empowered to write their own plays and continue their playwriting journeys with us long into the future.

Workshops in state schools are modelled on the Papatango New Writing Prize; students’ plays are published and performed by professional actors. Read more here.

Adult workshops are led by Papatango discoveries and artists, are available online, and include bursaries to cover travel costs for those attending in person. Read more here.

A fortnightly online career facilitation service run by the Papatango team will answer all your questions about Papatango, playwriting, or theatre in general. Read more here.

Playwriting courses are run for local communities at venues without in-house new writing provision, each culminating in a rehearsed reading free to local audiences. Read more here.


“Incredibly valuable – like having a personal dramaturg. Without sessions like this being free I wouldn’t have a resource, encouragement or ability to build a writing network!” – Participant Feedback
