Omnibus Literary Department aims to create a sounding board for writers at all stages of development, a space for work in progress and a launch pad for finished scripts.

Omnibus Writer’s Group

Sessions will take place on Monday evenings 7-9pm January – April starting on the 30th.

Are you working on a play or looking for inspiration with the next one? The Omnibus Writers’ Group has been devised to support writers of any level of experience focus, get their ideas on paper and work towards a complete play. Ten weekly sessions are led by literary manager, Saffron Myers supported by writers Scott Wilson and Mike Carter. Sessions take place on Monday evenings at the Omnibus October to December.

Over this time, you will be given a series of exercises to complete and tried and tested tools to develop your skills. You will have the chance to work with professional actors and invite an audience to a reading of an extract of your work at the Omnibus Studio Theatre. You will benefit from mentoring throughout and, once the ten weeks is complete, have a one to one coaching session from one of the course tutors. We also work hard to ensure the Writer’s Group is a positive, welcoming and enthusiastic environment in which writers can share their experiences with each other.

The cost of the programme is £130, spaces are strictly limited and allocated on a first come first served basis. Contact literary@omnibus-clapham.org to book.

Omnibus Script Service

Here at Omnibus we welcome unsolicited scripts and endeavour to read each one in view of it’s suitability for the various opportunities we provide. If you would also like to avail yourself of our script reading service for the cost of £30 your script will go to panel and receive a written report.

Scripts need to be in hard copy, with a brief synopsis in and details of any previous playwriting experience. Please send an accompanying return envelope (any scripts without postage will be recycled). Do not send multiple submissions or screenplays.
