In the autumn of 2010 and winter of 2011 Extant ran a 10 week performance writing programme called ‘Writing Stage’, for visually impaired writers at any level of experience.
The 11 participants worked with visually impaired tutor and experienced writer Alex Bulmer, to develop their ideas and writing into short pieces that were shown to an invited audience at the end of the program.
It is important for Extant as a company to provide training opportunities such as Writing Stage so visually impaired people can develop their skills in a safe space. We are grateful to Aculco radio for further providing the opportunity of the recorded documentation of this work.
Podcasts of the documentation can be found here.
