Farewell to Sheila

Sheila McAnulty has recently been on a seven-month sabbatical from NWP in order to concentrate on her own writing. Following her first full stage commission , another commission for a radio drama and taking part in the pilot MA at Bolton University, she has decided to step down from her position as Deputy Director.

We very sadly say good-bye to Sheila, but as it's for such a wonderful reason - to be a professional playwright, we're also delighted. What a potent mix of feelings!

After years of helping aspiring, emerging and professional playwrights we hope everyone will join us in wishing Sheila the best of luck with her new found success as a playwright.

If you'd like to send Sheila a message, best wishes or anything else then please get in touch with us and we will pass these on.
