April meeting news
Sussex Playwrights announcement
Discussion, Performance, Readings and Networking
For all types of dramatic writing…
Theatre, film, radio, podcast, audiobook…
Sussex Playwrights has been promoting new writing since 1935.
Festivals have been postponed, theatres are closing down and the NVT have cancelled their current production, so in keeping with current advice we won’t be holding a Sussex Playwrights April meeting.
We hope you’ll understand that we’re being careful.
Sussex Playwrights goes temporarily virtual
For April, we’ll be launching our occasional podcast series, so you can enjoy an online ‘meeting’ with us at the usual time. Just click the arrow at the top of the post to listen.
Hear the conversations we held in February with Sussex Playwrights writer/actor members who produce, create and perform their own work on stage, on screen and online.
Featuring Janet Behan, Eddie Alford, Tristan Woolf, James Alexander Allen, Thomas Everchild and Philippa Hammond

We hope to see you at the May meeting – we’ll keep you posted.
Announcing the Podcast One Minute Fiction Challenge
Short writing challenges – flash fiction, writing prompts, etc – are very popular. We’ve been exploring some short fiction challenges recently with some success, and we’re going to introduce them to Sussex Playwrights online. News about how it works and how you can play coming soon.
Announcing the 2020-2021 Constance Cox Prize Playwriting Competition
With the rise and rise of Print On Demand publishing, we’re planning to promote writers and writing by publishing the first collection of plays for stage under the Sussex Playwrights brand. We touched on the theme of self publishing at the February meeting and we’ll be discussing the ins and outs of publishing your own work in more depth here soon, with insights from our Secretary Thomas Everchild.
Our next Constance Cox Prize Playwriting Competition will also be a call for entries for this collection.
Details will be published here soon.
