The Jack also provides a space to the London Womens (Bame) Writers’ Group.
The group is a friendly, free, supportive network of creatives including but not limited to writers, directors, producers, actors and artistic directors. We meet bi-monthly at the Jack Studio Theatre to share new writing and give positive and constructive feedback. We particularly aim to support those writers and actors who identify as BAME but are open to all. All genders (and non binary) are welcome however the emphasis is on supporting the voice of women, reflecting the diversity of London and helping women’s stories to be heard.
Our experience is for words for the stage but we’d love to hear everything from first novel ideas to musicals! Please bring no more than 10 minutes for each piece and we will share as many as we can time allowing. We particularly would like to hear from women BAME actors for unrehearsed readings on the night and to share feedback with all. We aim to stage one piece from each meet up at a performance of Scratch at The Jack.
