A scratch night for artists to test early ideas to a supportive audience.
About this Event

Welcome to Writer’s Block, a scratch night hosted by Sophia Griffin & Grace Barrington, where artists get to test out ideas and share works-in-progress to a group of people for feedback.

It’s an intimate space where we get to talk through the knots, the sticking points, the stuck points, the “idk if this is even an idea” stages. It’s space for artists to gather; to remind ourselves of the incredible thinkers and makers in the city, and have time to connect and collaborate with each other.

Sometimes, all you need is some reassurance you’re onto a good thing, or a conversation to help you crystallise what that “thing” really is. Writer’s Block means you have a whole room of creatives ready to help.


So, what’s the format? Sophia and Grace ask three different writers to share something which they are writing/devising for the stage. Every writer is given a twenty minute slot; we listen to what they are working on, and then we give feedback. At the end, there’s time for drinks and socialising.

If this sounds like something you’d like to be a part of, then please come along - share your work, or lend an ear to someone else’s.

Tuesday 7th May 6.30pm-8.30pm at Birmingham Hippodrome.
