Course content

Our two-year MFA gives you the opportunity to launch your career as a playwright with a full run in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

This course has been launched to extend a great opportunity for trainee playwrights. Working in the heart of the festival city, there will be time to work with actors on all years of the BA Acting & English and the BA Acting for Stage & Screen courses. You will be working in a variety of ways, and working alongside trainee directors to workshop and stage new work. You'll have dedicated, industry-recognised mentors providing support throughout your training time and you’ll be studying in one of the most culturally vibrant cities in the world.

What you'll learn

The course is structured over five trimesters and along with many opportunities to write in various styles on a number of projects, you will study:
• Dramatic Story and Structure
• Script Analysis
• Applied Playwriting
• Professional Preparation
• Festival Production

Study modules mentioned above are indicative only. Some changes may occur between now and the time that you study.

Careers

While we can’t predict the future, we can be certain that an ever-expanding range of entertainment platforms will require an ever-expanding range of content. We believe that writers trained in the core skills of good story-telling, creating compelling and engaging characters and dialogue, finding a variety of ways to adapt their work to different contexts and media, and understanding a variety of marketing possibilities will mean that the writers will be able to adapt their work to a variety of platforms. This course aims to train such graduates, who can see unlimited potential and a variety of opportunities for themselves in many areas of the entertainment and writing/publishing industries.
