Writer Lab, in partnership with Playwrights’ Studio, Scotland, is a new weeklong writer residency opportunity, giving an early career professional playwright space to experiment with a new idea for a text in a rehearsal room. The Writer Lab will enable a writer to work with collaborators to approach a new idea and explore its potential by providing space, support, provocation and a £3,500 budget.

A successful Writer Lab applicant receives:

  • a funded opportunity to develop a new idea and explore its potential
  • support to plan their residency and work creatively with collaborators, within a mutually agreed budget of up to £3,500
  • a five-day residency in the Tron Theatre’s Changing House

Our mission with the Writer Lab is to provide an early career writer with support and space that enables a writer time and space to play with and explore an idea or project.

Applications to Writer Lab 2022 have now closed. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for future updates around residency opportunities.
