    Blank Canvas is a brand new creative writing venture by the Fletcher Players!

    Have a script that hasn't reached an audience yet? Looking to source feedback ahead of applying to competitions? Need an incentive to get that half-finished project on your laptop into working condition?

    In Michaelmas Week 0, the Fletcher Players are organising a table read for new and untested scripts by emerging Cambridge student writers. The idea is to create a low-key, welcoming space for scripts to be performed in front on an audience, who can then offer their responses. The focus is very much on providing a positive and nurturing environment where feedback can be sourced and given constructively. We're looking for all kinds of new ideas across different genres, so if you have something that fits the bill and want to see it performed then get in touch!
