The Writer’s Room in Partnership with Hackney Empire  and the Royal Court Theatre

Aged 14 – 19? Have an interest in writing and telling stories? Looking for a platform for your voice? The Writer’s Room is for you.

The Writer’s Room Part 1

Write your own stories with The Royal Court Theatre and see them performed by actors. You will have the opportunity to gain theatre industry insight, learn more about how characters and stories are told and see an exciting new play.

You don’t need any writing experience or need to know anything about theatre; we aim to provide you with a safe space to explore, experiment and shape your own work.

If you enjoy The Writer’s Room and want to further develop your writing, the work you complete in Part 1 can form your application to the full length course in October half term. (Mon 21 Oct – Fri 25 Oct, from 10am – 5pm on all days). All the details are below.

 

The Writers’ Room – Part 2: Full Course
October half term (Mon 21 Oct – Fri 25 Oct)
10am – 5pm daily

Over the week, you will work with Hackney Empire, the Royal Court and a professional playwright to learn how to approach a script, gather tips & tools for writing, gain valuable insight into the industry, and see theatre for free.

Each participant will write a short play which will be developed and performed by professional actors.   

You need to be able to commit to all sessions in order to take part. We will provide refreshments at each session.

Please note you can only apply for The Writer’s Room by participating in The Writer’s Room Part 1 in Sep.

This project, like all of our youth and participation programmes at Hackney Empire and the Royal Court, is completely free.
