Welcome to North West Playwrights
WE ARE CURRENTLY IN SUSPENDED ANIMATION, DUE TO THE WITHDRAWAL OF ARTS COUNCIL FUNDING.
WE ARE EXAMINING WAYS IN WHICH WE MIGHT CONTINUE TO PROVIDE SOME FORMS OF WRITER SUPPORT.
IF YOU SIGN UP ON THIS SITE, YOU WILL RECEIVE OCCASIONAL MAILINGS OF OPPORTUNITIES, AND WE'LL KEEP YOU POSTED ON NWP DEVELOPMENTS.
We used to offer:
- a Script Reading Service
- Classes, ranging from entry-level courses to specialised masterclasses
- Workshops allowing writers to develop a script with the input of professional actors, directors and dramaturgs
- a Mentoring Scheme, matching emerging writers with established professionals
- a variety of other projects, often in collaboration with theatre companies
