Sharpen your skills at a 2024 workshop

MWT’s monthly Workshops offer a great opportunity to sharpen
your existing playwriting skills, and also to develop new skills.


They are delivered by professional facilitators, playwrights, dramaturges and industry professionals.

Unless otherwise advertised, our Workshops are offered on the first Monday of the month on Zoom. They are open to writers at all stages of their careers – MWT members and non-members alike.

We have SEVEN Workshops on offer in 2024, plus a handful of valuable on-site Events. Take a look through our offerings below, pop your preferred sessions in your diary, and remember to REGISTER 5 days in advance for all workshops – just email us at
