Could you benefit from a mentor?

North West Playwrights  has a well-established scheme to provide an emerging writer with six months of support from an established professional playwright - an opportunity to benefit from their experience, not only in the craft of writing plays, but also in the business of being a working writer.

Previous mentors have included renowned playwright Kaite O'Reilly and Jack Bradley, writer and ex-Literary Manager of the National Theatre.

Applications are now closed for 2011.

NWP is looking at a scheme to facilitate co-mentoring relationships during 2011 as well.

This would mean pairing up writers at a similar level of experience, so they could share problems and insights and provide each other with moral and dramaturgical support.
