Tour the Writer: Call out for writers and storytellers

We're partnering 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’re launching this programme with an Open Writer’s Lab at Theatre by the Lake on Saturday 29 July where you’ll get to meet our team, connect with each other, and begin your development journey.

This will be 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

The Writer’s Lab will run for a full day (approx. six hours) with guest facilitators running creative writing workshops. But we’d also love to hear from you about what you’d like to see from a new development programme.

If you’re interested in coming along then please book in advance using the Eventbrite link here.

If you have any access requests to help you better participate in sessions, youll be able to let us know on the Eventbrite sign up page.
