The focus of this regular group will be to develop skills in writing for the stage. There will also be additional opportunities to explore other forms of creative writing, such as poetry, and watch live theatre. The 12-week course will place Muslim women at the heart of their own creative experience and provide the space, time and support needed to tell your stories in your own terms. These sessions are led by experienced playwright and producer, Sara Sharaawi, who will share skills to help you write dramatically and work alongside professional actors and a director to help develop your work.

Final pieces will then be shared with an audience at our Showcase event on Saturday 28th August.
