New Writers Programme

Following overwhelming demand the VAULT Festival New Writer’s Programme returns for 2020!

The VAULT Festival New Writers Programme offers a total introduction to writing for stage in a non-patronising and inclusive course.

Proudly supported by leading theatre publishers and performing rights agents Nick Hern Books, The VAULT Festival New Writers Programme aims to:

• Engage those with a keen interest in writing for the stage
• Help would-be playwrights start from scratch
• Reach people from backgrounds that make it difficult for them to break into the creative industries
• Provide a platform for those who have not had their voice heard

Designed and developed by playwright and screenwriter Camilla Whitehill (Where Do Little Birds Go?, Mr Incredible, Freeman), this year’s programme will be led by OFFIE Award nominated playwright Guleraana Mir (Coconut and BBC Writer’s Room).

Applications for the VAULT New Writers Award are now closed. We receieved 100s of applications and will be getting back to all applicants in mid December.
