February 8th: Fourth two lesson plans released


February 15th: Fifth two lesson plans released and submission window open

May 9th 2017: Lesson plans and play written by the student winners and overseen by a professional playwright published by Oberon Books


Lesson plans (which are of a flexible length) can be used in class in schools and Universities to teach students week by week playwriting craft from leaders in the industry and help them write their own play.


Alternatively, if you are a student, you can follow the lesson plans on your own to learn the best playwriting skills in the UK.
