Tour the Writer: Year One

We're proud to be partnered with Paines Plough and a number of other exciting theatres in the UK on a new development programme for writers and we want you to be involved!

Tour The Writer is a programme designed to create a nationwide network of writers, storytellers and creatives with ongoing support, development and mentoring from Theatre By The Lake, Paines Plough and our partners around the country.

We launched this programme with an Open Writer’s Lab at Theatre by the Lake on Saturday 29 July, 2023.

This was the first in a series of offers with Paines Plough so don’t worry if you can’t attend, there will be plenty more to come!

The Writers

We want to connect with anyone that writes, wants to write, or has never considered writing before. We’re looking for poets, authors, musicians, and storytellers in all their forms. If you’ve got an interest in writing for stage and performance, then we want to meet you.

We particularly want to hear from under-represented voices within the industry. We want to keep creating brave and bold spaces for voices we don’t often hear from to tell stories that aren’t often heard.

If you think that’s you, then get in touch. You don’t need to have written before or have any prior stage experience. You just need a desire to tell a story.

The Writer’s Lab 2023

The Writer’s Labs in 2023 ran for a full day (approx. six hours) with guest facilitators running creative writing workshops. We’d love to hear from you about what you’d like to see from a new development programme.
