Scriptworks is Doncaster's writing group welcoming anyone who has a love of story-telling. Scriptworks is a friendly and supportive environment, where local writers can develop their work, supported by professional writers.

All participants who attend 3+ sessions will be invited to take part in a sharing of their work in January, performed by professional actors, in Cast's Second Space.

Sign up for 3+ sessions to receive 1:1 mentoring from on of our Scriptworks leaders, and you can submit a script for actor R&D/script reading.

We encourage you to attend multiple sessions, in order to get the full benefits of the term. However, you can attend as a one-off to learn about the skills in that session, if you’d prefer. Please be aware that you won’t receive any mentoring, script development support or be part of any sharing if you only attend one session.
