The New Normal for Now: DSW July Meetup


Meeting in the sunshine was rather different from our usual meetings held in the Museum.  We enjoyed being able to discuss our different experiences of writing (or not writing) and responses to our lockdown experiences.  

Several of us found it difficult to write initially, some 'recovered' their muse quicker than others, some confessed to a short writing frenzy, which then stopped -  feast or famine.  Some members have written and read more poetry, some members have been inspired to write about problems which have emerged due to the lockdown experience.  

We enjoyed working together to critique two short scripts and wish RL every success with these pieces.  We look forward to a further meeting - outside in the sunshine.  Date to be confirmed.

Monthly meetings postponed for now


Derbyshire Scriptwriters has had to postpone the monthly meetings and
put our plans on hold due to the current Covid-19 Pandemic, but we're
still here, still writing, and still supporting each other by exchanging
information and opportunities and critiquing scripts.

DSW Members develop skills at Derby Quad


Several lucky DSW members were awarded bursaries from DSW funds and enjoyed two recent workshops at Derby Quad- 'Directing and Performing' and 'Scriptwriting from Page to Performance'.

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.
