New Writing Website Steven Rayner, 28 January 2013 Attendees: Steve & Lucy This session was called in response to the idea that came out of yesterday's ‘What Are We Going To Do About New Writing’ group, mourning the loss of resources provided by Writernet (and previous to that the New Playwright's Trust). It seems there is an appetite for resources for new writers (of plays, in the first instance). A starting point could be to provide information on who will read their work (theatres, competitions, production companies etc) and what are the entry limitations for these bodies. Beyond that, other useful resources would include an environment for writers to communicate with one another, information on spaces available for putting on work, information that could support professional development (courses, advice, mentoring). The first action is to set up a site listing organisations that will accept new writing. I will do this and if anyone would like to offer thoughts or advice, please let me know.

I've found your email via your website so will drop you an email. Steve. Abigail Anderson, 1 February 2013 hello there! We talked in the Sunday session on “what to do about new writing” about the demise of new playwrights trust/writernet who were the original creators and keepers of the list of where to send your play. It struck me that the Writers Guild is still going strong - have they got a similar list? they might well do. Don't duplicate work - collaborate! Hope this is of interest. Best wishes Abi Anderson Steven Rayner, 2 February 2013 Hello Abigail, Thanks for your message. Yes, will definitely investigate if this info is already available as a first step, Thanks for pointing me towards the Writers' Guild, I'll check in with them on Monday. Steve.
