This Autumn we’re kicking off our new 503 Studio with an incredible line up of courses, masterclasses, 1-2-1 dramaturgy sessions, open talks, and taster sessions, led by some of the countries brightest and best writers, including 503 Alumni as well as the 503 team.

The Autumn Writers Programme will be delivered online. However, where there is demand we will also offer in person sessions later in the year where possible. To find out more about each programme and what is right for you, just click the course title.
