Just heard from Spread the Word, the London based literary organisation, that they are launching a programme of topical debates next month. Each season a panel of key figures from within the writing industry will discuss the issues facing writers today. They will be looking at poetry, prose, film and graphic novels in future seasons but it all kicks off with writing for the theatre.
THE GATEKEEPERS SERIES
TIME Saturday 8 December | 6pm – 8pm (followed by networking and drinks till 9pm) PLACE Free Word Centre, 60 Farringdon Road, London, EC1R 3GA| COST £20/£12 (concessions)
More information from Spread the Word….
‘Wright’ is an archaic English term for a craftsman (as in shipwright or cartwright). A playwright is someone who has wrought words into a dramatic form; she/ he is someone who crafts a play. Most unsolicited plays sent to new writing theatres arrive at the Literary Department – and the first hurdle is the theatre’s script readers. Other routes into production exist, yet putting on your own work or seeking ventures outside of London’s various bastions of drama is no mean feat.
