Writer in Residence

Our annual Writer in Residence programme was created to give aspiring LGBT+ writers the opportunity to be mentored by our Artistic Managing Director and also share their own knowledge and skills with the company. The selected writer also has the opportunity at least twice within their residency to have their work performed to an audience.

This programme is invaluable for both the writers and the company. The writers have the chance to gain new insight, develop their skills and expand their knowledge and the company benefits from the writer sharing their prior knowledge and skill.

This is not a position for new writers but for those who are at the start of their writing careers or who want to move into play writing from other areas. We generally select our Writer in Residence from those we have worked with over the previous twelve months, so keep watch for any open call outs we have throughout the year.

Our current Writer in Residence is the brilliant Will Cooper!
