We've got big plans this year…

Emerging Writers’ Group

Our Emerging Writers’ Group (EWG) is entering its second year with a new intake of six writers.

Last year’s EWG consisted of Josh Azouz, Lily Bevan, Sevan K. Greene, Nabihah Islam, Gemma Rogers and Sophie Wu. Of those writers, two are currently under commission to the Bush, two more are on attachment to the theatre, and the remaining two continue to receive artistic support on new work.

The class of 2016 will be: 

  • Tristan Bernays
  • Tristan Fynn-Aiduenu
  • Kamal Kaan
  • Jessica Sian
  • A.C Smith
  • Camilla Whitehill

The EWG is an opportunity for us to develop relationships with new playwrights encountered through our unsolicited submissions process and further afield – all of whom are at early stages in their careers. It aims to support writers over a sustained period of time and help encourage work on a new full length play.
