Founded in 2018, Liverpool, UK.
“Empowering Liverpool’s emerging artists, Make it Write transforms fresh voices into radio, stage and Screen sensations. Join us for workshops, collaborations and productions where every story takes centre stage.”
“Make it Write emerged from the vibrant heart of Liverpool’s creative landscape with a pioneering spirit, ignited in the historical Masonic Bar (now the arts bar) and sustained through the passion of artists and visionaries. We are a beacon of inspiration and practical support for the city’s emerging talents in writing and fringe performance. Since our inception in February 2018, we’ve been driven by the ethos that every voice deserves a stage and every story merits an audience.
Our mission is to nurture and celebrate new writing, acting, and directing, transforming fresh ideas into captivating performances. We stand as a collaborative force, uniting writers, actors, directors, and crews to learn, create, and thrive together. Through our innovative workshops, competitive productions, and inclusive ‘Page-to-Stage’ initiatives funded by our community partners, including the National Lottery Community Fund, we’ve cultivated a sanctuary for creative experimentation and growth.
At Make it Write, we champion the belief that if you never see your work up on its feet, how can you learn to develop what you write? Its a philosophy that we embody as we provide affordable rehearsal spaces, forge supportive networks, and offer platforms where the unseen and unheard can shine. Our adaptable approach during times of change, including a seamless transition to online platforms during challenging times, reflects our commitment to keeping the arts alive and accessible to all.
As we step into a new chapter with our own studio space, we are steadfast in our dedication to fostering a community where artists can boldly play with their plays, sharpen their skills, and see their work illuminate the stage. Make it Write is more than just an arts collective; it’s a thriving testament to Liverpool’s indomitable spirit, a nurturing ground for the under-represented, and a herald of the rich tapestry of stories that define our city and our times.”
