Writers' Guild meeting in the West Midlands

Scripting the Future?

The Writers' Guild of Great Britain invites you to a meeting to discuss the future of new writing in the West Midlands following the Arts Council’s decision to cut funding to Script, the agency for developing writers in the region.

The meeting will be opened by a panel discussion between Nicholas McInerny, chair of Script, Caroline Jester, Literary Manager of the Birmingham Repertory Theatre and Jonathan Davidson, Director of Midland Creative Projects Ltd and the Birmingham Book Festival, chaired by David Edgar, president of the Writers’ Guild. Representatives of West Midlands ’ theatres, television, radio and film producers and arts agencies will be at the meeting.

All writers are welcome to this FREE event. Following the success of our first meeting in March, the West Midlands branch of the Writers’ Guild will be officially launched, and celebrated with a glass of wine.

Venue: The Birmingham Rep ( St Paul ’s suite), Wednesday 18 June, 7.30pm
Our last meeting was oversubscribed so please RSVP as soon as possible to WMidWritersGuild(AT)aol.com. For further information about the Writers' Guild, see www.writersguild.org.uk
