Writers’ Lab Taster: Waltham Forest

Fri 14 Jul 23 90 minutes
If you're thinking about trying writing for the first time and not sure where to begin, come along to our friendly informal introduction to playwriting.

Tasters will introduce you to a range of introductory playwriting skills including developing character, location and dialogue, all expertly guided by Soho Theatre’s Writers’ Lab Course Leader Sharmila Chauhan.

This taster is for people aged 18+ who lives, works or studies in Waltham Forest

Bursaries are available for those who receive Universal Credit or other welfare benefits. However, if cost is a barrier to you taking part for any reason, please contact and we can discuss possible bursary options.


This taster is delivered in conjunction with Waltham Forest Library.
