What is #WrAP? 

#WrAP (Write a Play)  is our annual January playwriting challenge and it’s back for the third year running. Throughout the month, we provide prompts, exercises, mini online workshops, and inspiration to support you in writing a whole draft of a play in just a month. All of this is sent directly to your inbox to challenge you and spur you on.

Since it began in 2018, over 300 of you have taken part in #WrAP – completing first drafts, a few scenes, or simply coming up with ideas that you’ve been able to work on throughout the year. Some of these ideas have already been developed into bigger things.

The feedback we’ve had has been overwhelming, with writers telling us that whether they finished their scripts or not, #WrAP gave their writing the boost they needed for the year ahead.

Join us for #WrAP2020 

If you want to challenge yourself, get some inspiration and write with the support of a playwriting community, then join us for #WrAP2020.

It doesn’t matter if it’s your first play or your fiftieth, or if you have minimal spare time: all that matters is that you want to give it a go. After all, even if you only get a few scenes written, or a rough first draft, it’s still more than you had at the start of January. And it’s got to be better than signing up for an expensive gym membership, right?

This year, all WrAP participants will be eligible to apply for London Playwrights 2020, our new writer development programme. Find out more here.
