Up Close

Up Close was an occasional, full day event for the public to engage with Playwrights' Studio through participating in a diverse programme of workshops. This was a unique opportunity to network with writers and theatre practitioners, Playwrights' Studio staff and our Associate Playwrights.

Up Close offered:

  • Playwriting workshops at introductory and further skills levels;
  • Script Surgeries - a chance for playwrights to discuss their work face-to-face and get professional feedback;
  • Workshops for writing radio drama and/or TV;
  • Panel discussions with industry professionals;
  • Rehearsed readings of new work;
  • A bookshop and information point selling plays by Scotland's playwrights.

Up Close Public Workshops were superceded by Playwrights' Studio, Scotland's Talkfest events.
