TAPS training scheme forced to close

As The Stage reports, TAPS, the long-running writer training scheme has been forced into closure due to lack of funding.
Television Arts Performance Showcase, which is dedicated to finding new talent and which has trained writers such as Peter Moffat and Roy Williams, said it will close at the end of the month.

Keith Richardson, chairman of the board of trustees, said “the current economic climate” and changes in funding opportunities for independent training suppliers had “made the business of sponsoring new talent virtually impossible.”

    I'll try for the third time.

    I am sorry to see the demise of TAPS speaking as someone who has attended its courses.

    I was wondering if this will have a knock on effect on the agency Culverhouse and James.
