Mayflower Young Writers (MYW)
Do you like writing? Would you like to work with a professional writer and find out more about selected Mayflower Theatre shows? Are you at secondary school or college? Would you like to see your work performed and published online and in print?
As part of the SO:Write literature development initiative, ArtfulScribe and Mayflower Theatre invite you to get involved with an exciting creative project that will help you develop the skills, confidence, and experience of a writer’s life.
You will explore creative writing through workshops on topics like characterisation, dialogue, setting, and plot, as well as through practical exercises involving interviews with cast and crew and reviews of performances. You will work across genres including non-fiction, fiction, poetry and script-writing.
Sessions take place on a weekly basis, on Saturday mornings during term-times. There are separate classes for writers aged 11-14 and 15-18. Each term is a 12 week block with a specific focus. For example, a previous spring term included attendance at The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime and some workshops that used this show as a basis for exploring approaches to writing.
All workshops offer a safe, supportive environment, encouraging young writers to share work and to give and receive feedback in a respectful way that empowers voices in the workshop community.
These sessions are free but we are looking for commitment. Places are limited, please register your interest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. All workshops are suitable for beginners and advanced writers.

We look forward to hearing from you and hope to see you at Mayflower Theatre!
