London Playwrights’ Blog was started in 2013 as a resource for emerging playwrights.  We aim to bring together the latest opportunities, best resources, and good advice in one place.

In 2015, the team formed London Playwrights’ Workshop Ltd as a non-profit company to help expand this support for writers through workshops, events, and expanded online resources.

    1. Thanks for your comment, Merlin! We don’t have an email list set up at the moment, but this is something we’re looking into for the future. We’ll definitely post when we’ve got it set up.

  1. I just wanted to say a huge thank you for supplying such a valuable resource. It can be so easy to miss competitions and briefs which are perfect for you because you don’t know about them. Your website is by far the clearest, easiest to use and most useful of all playwriting calendar type blogs around. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge and putting your time into this endeavour. It is so incredibly valuable to others in the industry!

  3. Love your site, but please, please, could you mark the “new” submissions each week? I should be able to remember which ones I’ve already looked at the week before, but I can’t.

    1. Thanks for the suggestion, Ann. This is actually a bigger admin headache than you might imagine, but we’ll see what we can do! In the meantime, you can always scroll down to see the new posts, or check out our Twitter feed at @LDNPlaywrights to see them all in one place.

  4. Hello,
    I suggest you copy and paste the content and put it on a Word page. You retain the ability to connect to websites but you can also mark or delete and keep your own version of what’s there, what you picked out, and what you don’t want. It’s housekeeping really.

  5. A big thank you. I’m really grateful for your blog which must require quite an effort to maintain.
