East Midlands Branch event

To all members of the Writers’ Guild based in the East Midlands

‘Guy Hibbert in conversation with David Edgar’

Nottingham – 6.45pm Friday 3rd July 2009

The Writers’ Guild cordially invites you to a special event at the Broadway Media Centre, 14-18 Broad Street, Nottingham, NG13AL on Friday July 3rd between 6.45pm and 8pm.

From 29th June 29th until 5th July Broadway Nottingham is playing host to ScreenLit – an exciting new festival celebrating film, television and writing (see for more information). The Guild is delighted to support the festival, stay in touch with existing members and also encourage the recruitment of new members.

The event will start with a conversation between playwright David Edgar (President of the Guild) and the award-winning screenwriter Guy Hibbert (Five Minutes of Heaven, Omagh), about writing for the screen. This will be followed by a questions and answers session and a reception that should offer a great opportunity to network with fellow writers from the East Midlands region over a glass of wine.

Our event is FREE but will be followed at 8pm by a ticketed event – a screening of Guy’s new film ‘Five Minutes of Heaven’, winner of the world screenwriting award at the recent Sundance Film Festival. Those interested in purchasing tickets for the 8pm screening of ‘Five Minutes of Heaven’ (£6.20) and/or for the 3pm Paul Schrader Masterclass (£20) can contact Broadway by telephone (01159526611) or book on-line at

If you are intending to come to the event, please RSVP to Erik Pohl in the Guild office at . Numbers are limited so we will deal with requests on a first come first served basis.

We look forward to seeing you,

Phil Nodding

Guild Executive Council representative for the East Midlands Region
