Drama Writing – MA

*Please note this course is subject to validation by the University of the West of England (UWE).

Students will be taught by experienced practitioners within a conservatoire setting, working with top industry professionals and alongside students on other course (acting, design, directing etc) and have your work explored in a practical setting.

Studying and developing your craft of writing within a drama school means that you will have the opportunity to see your work practically explored by actors, directors and other theatre makers.

This is a full-time course, but contact hours will normally be concentrated into two days a week (Thursday and Friday), with four ‘intensive weeks’ spread through the year. The Writers’ Hub is a dedicated space for teaching & learning, individual writing and for the group to programme activities.

It is expected that by the end of the course you will have developed a signature-script to be able to offer to producers, have a developed understanding of the demands of the different media (stage, screen, audio etc) and a sophisticated understanding of the industry.

Applications to this course are via UCAS Conservatoires. For more information about this course and how to apply, visit the school website.
