South West New Writing Network meeting
The South West New Writing Network, convened by writernet, is meeting next Thursday, 3 November, from 1-5pm in the Music Room of the Folk House at 40 Park Street, Bristol, BS1 5JG. The meeting is timed to coincide with Theatre Bristol’s ‘Why do you practice on the outside?’ conference.

South West New Writing Network meetings are an opportunity to meet writers, producers and others involved in new theatre writing from across the region. Sarah Dickenson, writernet’s Information and Research Consultant, writes that ‘the focus of the meeting will be “the role of the playwright in 21st century contexts”. What are the diverse contexts in which playwrights make work in Bristol and the South West, and what are the processes through which they make them? What are the skills that playwrights need to work in these different ways, and how can they go about getting them?’
