WriteWest delivers playwriting workshops in state schools across Bristol, Gloucestershire and Somerset.
At the first workshop, students form theatre companies and follow an intensive, structured programme to create their own short plays through a mix of devised and scripted exercises that are suitable for all levels of literacy.
At the second workshop a cast of professional actors perform these plays, and the students are given copies of their scripts as published playtexts.
Training for teachers and course materials are provided to ensure as many schools as possible can participate.
If your school would be interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for further information.
