The Avalon Mentorship is a 6-month all-encompassing development programme for emerging Scottish playwrights.
Each Playwright will receive one-to-one mentoring to develop their writing skills from the company’s experienced Writer-in-Residence and playwright Caroline Dunford. They will be guided on the creative process from the company’s Artistic Director Andy Corelli and learn about the operational aspects of staging a show from its Producer Tina Finch. Up to 6 of the playwrights will have an in-depth scene workshop of their final script with Andy and a team of professional actors. Up to 3 of these may in addition, be offered a full-scale professional production.
