Aliya Gulamani, deaf playwright, accepted to the Royal Court’s prestigious Young Writer’s Programme

Aliya Gulamani is a young deaf playwright who has recently been
accepted to the Royal Court’s prestigious Young
Writer’s Programme, after two years as a member of Deafinitely Theatre’s young writers group.

When did you first start writing? I started writing poetry when I was 8 or 9 years old, and I’ve loved writing short stories for as long as I can remember. My venture into playwriting began when I joined Deafinitely Theatre’s ‘Deafinitely Creative’ group.

How did that help you? The course taught us how to observe the world to feed our imagination
