Sherman Writers Group

Sharpen and further develop your writing skills with our flagship Sherman Writers Group scheme.

This nuts and bolts writers group is for emerging writers with some previous writing experience looking to further develop their skills.

Starting in October, this nine-month programme is run by our Literary team and guest writers. Writers will pitch an idea for a play and during the monthly meetings explore structure, story and craft whilst sharpening their writing skills. Regular feedback and support will be given on new drafts. There will also be an opportunity to submit a full draft for feedback as well as to see selected scenes of the play performed at a sharing at the end.

The Sherman Writers Group is limited to eight writers and will be held at the Sherman Theatre as well as on Zoom. The scheme will consist of two groups, one for writers writing in Welsh and one for writers writing in English.

To be considered for the group or if you have any questions about this opportunity please email us at

Submissions can be made in writing, video or audio format and should contain a brief outline of who you are, your previous writing experience and an outline of the play you would like to develop during the programme. Please keep submissions to up to 2 sides of A4 or up to 5 minutes for video/audio submissions.
