The John Retallack Playwriting Course 2019/2020
Mon 30 Sep 2019 to Mon 8 Jun 2020
There are just three places available on the John Retallack Playwriting Course 2019/2020, Oxford, which now continues into its 3rd successful year. It takes place every Monday from September 30th, 2019 to June 8th, 2020, at 6 - 8.30pm.

The John Retallack Playwriting Course is a professional course based in central Oxford that covers every aspect of writing a play.  Over 30 weekly 2.5-hour sessions and three half day workshops between September 2019 and June 2020, a selected group of promising writers write three pieces, starting with a 15 minute text in the first term and moving towards a full-length script in the third.

You might be a brand new writer, or someone who has written a great deal but has yet to break through fully on to the professional stage or radio – or you might have published and want to build up your skills as a playwright.

The group will be restricted to eight writers, ensuring close personal attention to each individual throughout the year.

Admission is by interview, plus two 20-page samples of the applicant’s written work. No academic qualification is required and the course is open to anyone over 18.

Dates: Monday 30 September 2019 to 8 June 2020, 6 - 8.30pm
Location: Vincent's Club Dining Room, 1A King Edward St, Oxford OX1 4HS
