The Year of Experimentation is a new writing festival taking place at The Platform Theatre at Central Saint Martins from 3 July – 4 July 2014 … Ola is delivering a FREE playwriting masterclass as part of Day One, which will offer masterclasses to writers, students, the public and the industry on writing for theatre, film, television, radio and digital media.
Further to finishing the 11-week Critical Mass programme in December 2013, 10 scripts have been received by the Belgrade Theatre and we’re now in the process of reading them all. Hopefully we’ll have enough material for a showcase of rehearsed readings later in the year.
Ola will be starting a new 11-week writers’ group tonight at the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry. Critical Mass is a programme for budding playwrights aged 18 and above from Black and Minority Ethnic Communities. This is Ola’s ninth year of running Critical Mass at venues across the UK.

Whitestone Arts, Keighley, West Yorkshire …THE WRITE PLACE celebrates the impact of location on creativity, kick-starting the weekend with practical writing exercises that draw inspiration from the beautiful setting of Whitestone Farm. Enjoying the luxury of time and space, you will be encouraged to take an holistic approach to your writing, by ruling everything in – seeking inspiration from your own personal experience, your current surroundings…
