Lots of announcements and news for writers and actors in our August meeting:

The launch of our regular drama podcast: We’re currently post-producing the three winning plays from our last competition. The three full-cast audio dramas will then make up the first programmes in Sussex Playwrights’ new podcast feature.

Publishing: Sussex Playwrights is developing a plan using print-on-demand services to publish selected plays and writing under the Sussex Playwrights banner, so it can be available to companies, producers and actors worldwide.

On August 5th we’ll be announcing how these plans will tie in with the new 2018-19 Constance Cox playwriting competition.

Things are changing! Come along and hear all the details about this latest news and find out how you can be a part of this exciting new concept for Sussex Playwrights.
