Write Here, Write Now

Ever wanted to write a play? Write Here, Write Now  is a playwriting course aimed at young people of colour, aged 16-25, who live in Tyne & Wear.

Exploring storytelling and writing a play for the stage, the course will be led by Chinonyerem  Odimba, Live Theatre’s Writer in Residence, with guest sessions from other theatre artists from across the UK.

Write Here, Write Now is about imagination, new voices, new stories and new experiences. It doesn’t matter if you have previous experience of writing or none at all.

Write Here, Write Now is made possible with funding from The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation. Delivered in partnership with Freedom Studios, Bradford, Waka Waka, Northern Roots and Gem Arts.

This is a legacy project, originally called Gben/Write!, created in memory of Osa Omorogbe.
