The Avalon Mentorship for emerging Scottish playwrights is a 6-month development programme run by the company in conjunction with its Writer-in-Residence Caroline Dunford .
Up to 6 playwrights will be selected to participate. Submissions can be a full script or a work-in-progress you wish to develop. The programme culminates with up to 6 of the final pieces of work having an in-depth scene workshop with the company's Artistic Director and a team of professional actors. Up to 3 of these final pieces may in addition, be offered a full-scale professional production by the company.
The 2012 submission window was open for 2 weeks from 10th September. The next submissions will be accepted September 2013.
It is planned that the introduction of the programme in 2011 will be the first in a 3-year commitment by the Company. The programme will continue to evolve and be shaped by feedback from all participants.
