Emerging Writers’ Group

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

The EWG is an opportunity for the Bush 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.

The class of 2019 will be: 

  • Will Jackson
  • Natasha Simone
  • Tife Kusoro
  • Ava Wong Davies
  • Casey Bailey
  • Benedict Lombe

“I’ve really felt like we’ve been brought into the Bush community in a meaningful way, and the building has taken us under its wing. I’ve made genuine connections with the other writers in the group which feel incredibly powerful.” Ella Road
