Our final meeting of 2020 was over the internet again, with a great deal of discussion about the merits of outdoor performances alongside DSW member Johns ghostly tale in the park.
And as a new, and hopefully brighter new year is around the corner, a number of DSW members have been awarded Bursaries and will be attending Quad courses in January 2021.
Wishing you all a happy and safe Christmas and New Year!

DSW continue to share writing opportunities and support each other during these difficult times. Our November meeting happened via Zoom and members who were awarded a bursary towards the cost of Quad will be receiving cheques shortly. The bursary was used to attend Alex Davies' excellent Ghost Writing session - and the group is looking forward to being able to work with local actors on a ghostly project in the future. Two members enjoyed being part of a lively online reading group hosted by another DSW member. Next month we will be meeting on line, and look forward to having a ghostly script to critique.

Derbyshire Scriptwriters have continued to support each other and critique scripts over recent difficult months.
Some DSW members will be meeting in a member's outdoor space, weather permitting, on Sunday 12th July to critique two short scripts and deal with a short business agenda and have a sociable catch-up.
Anyone interested in coming should contact the Secretary for details on email: firstname.lastname@example.org

The morning and the afternoon sessions were interesting, helpful and well timed for DSW as members are looking forward to bringing their own short plays 'from page to performance' later this year.
Local writer Tina Jay and Director Jack Brett Anderson were generous and helpful and inspirational. Jack will be Directing Tina's current play 'Syndrome' at the Tristam Bates Theatre in London in February and we thank them, and wish them every success with the play.
Also thanks to Alex Davies at Quad for hosting these two excellent workshops.
