Hear us read from your latest writing projects
This month we’ll be discussing each others’ work in progress and planning potential dates for an evening of readings before the next submissions deadline (in July). So, if you’re a writer, do bring along a few pages for everyone to look at – and if you’re an actor or director who’s interested in new writing, just turn up with a sense of curiosity.
Other opportunities during the year to see your short-form writing performed include the shorts night during Fest Norwood in August, and an evening of Victorian and Edwardian-era ghost stories in November. So if you’d like to be involved in either of those, get your thinking caps on and sharpen those quills.
This month’s SLT Write Club meet-up is in the SLT bar on Monday 10 February, from 8pm.
About SLT Write Club
Our monthly informal meet-up is open to all SLT members, whatever your level of experience. It’s free to attend and there’s no ongoing commitment. The purpose of the monthly meet-up is to discuss playwriting projects rather than reading through unpublished plays, but we also hope to organise related events, including:
- Readings of work in progress, as a social activity at SLT
- Short-form writing challenges – eg, writing a 10-minute play
- Rehearsed/semi-staged readings at SLT with an audience
- Submitting pieces for Fest Norwood Shorts (which takes place in August)
- Engaging directors and actors to develop longer-form writing
- Submitting full-length plays for future SLT seasons
- Workshops and short courses with professional writers
Whether you’re an experienced writer, actor or director, or a complete novice, you don’t need to bring anything with you – just a sense of curiosity and a willingness to engage creatively with other people.
If you have any queries email SLT training director Dave Hollander.
