Theatre-In-Education (TiE) is a growing area of employment for writers. A large number of companies in the UK specialise in developing and producing theatre for schools, building plays around a particular educational topic or debate. This one-day workshop will introduce participants to the fundamentals of writing for young audiences. Through the exploration of both theory and practice in playwriting, it will help participants develop a thorough understanding of writing for commission and writing to a brief. The aim of the workshop is to both develop writing techniques and the individual’s voice but also to consider playwriting as a vocation, specifically in education.
