About Scriptwriters & Co

“I’M FIRST AND FOREMOST INTERESTED IN THE STORY, THE CHARACTERS” - DAVID LEAN

WELCOME!

Scriptwriters & Co (aka S&Co) is for playwrights, screenwriters, script readers, actors, filmmakers and/or theatrical producers. Actually, it's for anyone who studies or works in the performing arts, at any stage of your career and wherever you live.

There's so much creative talent in the world, yet few places unite us: stage, audio, screen and more. We offer a place where theatre, audio, film and TV people can network and support one another, online or in person, in a collaborative, constructive, positive environment.

The group kicked off in Bath, in the south west of England, and that's still our hub. But location no longer matters. Wherever you live, if you have an internet connection you're welcome to enter our competitions, and we'll beam monthly online Scratch Nights to your computer, where winning scripts are performed by our company of auditioned S&Co Actors.

Our vibrant Facebook page is buzzing with info and support. Think of S&Co as your go-to creative community, and feel free to share questions or information on anything from loglines, plots and venues to auditions, scriptwriting competitions and film festivals. Who knows what links you may forge to progress your career?

Covid-19 temporarily stops us meeting in person, but we hope to get to know you at online Scriptwriters & Co events. We have members from across the UK as well as continental Europe, the US, India, Africa and Australasia. Next: Antarctica!

Please sign up now to join our growing community, and make sure you find out about our events.

Our live Bath-based gatherings - when they resume - will feature networking and a free drink, a fabulous guest speaker, then readings, discussion and chat until until closing time. But we'll still find a way of streaming them all around the world.

Till we meet in person, keep writing, acting, directing, shooting, producing and posting online... whatever!
