In April 2020, the Waterside Theatre launched our Adult Creative Writing Course, City Voices, as part of our community engagement programme during the first lockdown.  This programme for writers has been so successful and has gone from strength to strength.  

Writers came together online as part of this unique Waterside Theatre Creative Writing project. Weekly worksheets, a private FB group (where writers could connect and pick up daily writing tips) and personal feedback on work from tutor Anne McMaster allowed those taking part in the course to build a confident writing practice, develop their skills and work regularly on a range of writing genres.

Our last 5-week programme, Elemental, has just finished and we are excited to announce that we will have another 8-week course on offer during July and August 2021, dates to be announced soon.
