 Video Writers Project! 

We also have our Writers Project Videos available! 

The writers Project is a successful and imaginative series of workshops that has run in over 10 schools across Wandsworth, London. Within the writers project your young people have the opportunity to create and explore the building blocks to playwriting as well as giving them the chance to create their very own play! Each session explores a different topic such as structure, setting, character, dialogue and lots more. The Writer's Project was originally formed in collaboration with a select group of Putney Primary schools to engage and improve students' creative writing and English skills. 

The writers Project includes 3 interactive online video's with a FREE taster video.

We can't wait to be creative with you!

The Writers Project

A project for primary school children aged 8-11

Working with published writer Isley Lynn, Group 64's education department have been running the exciting Writers Project for the past 2 years with St Mary’s School in Putney and Sacred Heart School in Roehampton. 

Aim - to develop skills, excitement and passion for the process of creative writing and literacy.

Project overview - The project will facilitate the class to create and write their own script based on characters, dialogue and story ideas that are developed through a series of workshops. The class will work with a Playwright and a Director in school and then at Putney Arts Theatre.

The script will then be performed by the class who created it, at our very own Putney Arts Theatre.
