We run a variety of writing workshops. Typically the workshops include exercises to inspire and develop material, characters & dialogue, one to one feedback about the work and also a chance to have their work read by professional actors, either in front of a live audience in a professional theatre, when Covid restrictions allow, or streamed as part of our Virtual programme.
Currently we are delivering these workshops online, using a programme of recorded videos along with live group and individual sessions delivered via Zoom. You can see some examples of current and recent projects below.
We are working with mental health charity “See Me”, and 10 women writers to create a series of monologues performed by professional actors. Humorous and thought provoking, they will aim to take us beyond what people see, hear, or take at face value of woman in their 50's. These performances will be free to watch online.
We are working with 10 writers who have a connection with Paisley, and in particular the area of Ferguslie Park, to turn their stories into theatrical monologues performed by professional actors. These performances will be free to watch online.
Beyond the Headlines joins writers from Scottish Community Drama Association Clubs from across Scotland, and high-profile professional actors who are ex SCDA members, in the premier of a series of new monologues. Free to watch now.
The culmination of a project in conjunction with See Me mental health charity. We worked with 14 writers to create monologues that move us beyond what we see, hear or take at face value. Actors recorded the monologues in their own homes under lockdown conditions. Free to watch now.
Write Lines is a series of writing workshops held annually in association with Glasgow Libraries for Book week Scotland. It's an opportunity for writers to attend workshops with producer and playwright Lisa Nicoll culminating in the production of a new 10 minute play or the beginning of a larger piece of work.
It also offers the chance for writers to have their work read by professional actors, in front of a live audience in professional theatre. Write Lines is currently on hold due to Covid 19 restrictions, but we hope to resume the programme when restrictions allow, and it is considered safe and sensible to do so.
