“I’m first and foremost interested in the story, the characters” – David Lean

I set up Scriptwriters & Co in early 2020, to unite people who work across the performing arts, and we already have nearly a thousand members.

We were thrilled to be finalists in three categories of the 2020 Creative Bath Awards.

We're based in Bath, England, and that’s where our live events and scratch nights will normally take place (they're currently online). But if you’re a playwright, screenwriter, actor, filmmaker or theatrical producer – at any stage of your career – you’re welcome to join our thriving online community and watch our monthly S&Co Scratch Nights from anywhere in the world.

I created the group so we could all form collaborative relationships. You’ll find a wealth of industry information and tips on our Facebook page. It's a place to join, network and support one another in a supportive, positive environment. Feel free to post questions or notices on anything from loglines, plots and venues to auditions, scriptwriting competitions and film festivals.

We're always keen to meet other writers as well as directors, producers and techies. Actors too, of all ages and genders.

See you on Facebook and Twitter or, best of all, please subscribe!

And keep writing!
