More Guild events

Soap Writers' Forum

If you're currently writing for any long running TV drama series or soaps, whether writing your own original work or episodes of existing series, The Writers' Guild invites you to join us for the Soap Writers' Forum on Tuesday 3rd July at The Writers' Guild Centre from 7.00 pm - 9pm.

The Guild's Television Committee is currently working on a Good Practice Guide and we want to get an overall and realistic picture of what it is like to work on major TV continuing drama series today. Come along and share your experiences whether you've been writing for soaps and drama series for a while or you're new to this area. The event is free and open to all working TV writers, Guild members and non-members.

If you would like to attend the forum please email Moe at: moe@writersguild.org.uk or contact the Guild Office on 0207 833 0777

Writers’ Guild Variety Nights

The Writers' Guild Variety Nights are back from Tuesday 10th July from 7.00pm - 9.30pm.

Writers' Guild Variety Nights are a series of regular events at which writers can showcase their work, or just come along and network with each other, in an informal 'industry' environment.

Whether you are a performance poet, a novelist with a desire to share your latest chapter, a playwright with a favourite scene, a budding comic or you feel you could come along and be an enthusiastic audience member - we want to hear from you!

Performance slots are open to everyone but Guild members are given preference. Each performer will be given a five minute slot. Tickets cost £2 for Guild members and £3 non-members and will be sold on the door but places are limited so please book in advance. If you would like to attend please email Moe at : moe@writersguild.org.uk or contact the Guild office on 0207 833 0777.

  1. As Chair of the TV Committee, I want to assure anyone who
    comes to our Soap Writers' Forum that any and all comments will be treated totally confidentially, and any information we glean for the Guide will be used anonymously. We're not trying to create martyrs, just make life better for writers! The whole industry can't help but profit from our proposed Good Practice Guide.
