Free creative writing and theatre programme in Edinburgh

We're offering those aged 16+ who are out of work the chance to work with professional writers and dramatists as part of a free creative writing and drama course, taking inspiration from the hidden stories that make up the city of Edinburgh.

Participants will earn a £55 weekly training allowance and a contribution towards travel expenses (both subject to eligibility).

You will gain SQA qualifications and receive support with job-hunting, CV-writing and interview skills as part of this SDS Stage 2 and Stage 3 Employability Fund programme.

The programme is running now until 16th February 2018. Workshops take place between from Tuesday - Friday from 9.30am - 4pm each day. The venue is the Assembly Roxy, 2 Roxburgh Place, Edinburgh EH8 9SU.

To sign up or make a referral - or if you would just like more information - please contact Impact Arts' lead tutor Rosanna Hall on 07795233408 or email
