July Meeting: Tuesday 3rd, 7.30, Flowerpot Pub

Hello, it's our last meeting before the summer holidays - we'll catch up again in September, but before we even start to think about sandcastles and suncream, we'll be thinking about another one of our members scripts!  As well as being really useful feedback for our members, it's a great way to keep your critical cells working on your own projects before you present them for critique...

If you want to see and hear what we think, agree on and disagree on, come along and say hello at the Flowerpot Pub, Derby, or email us if you'd like to come to our next meeting: joinus@derbyshirescriptwriters.co.uk

Last Saturday Derbyshire Scriptwriters held a fantastic session with Neil McKay, one of Britain's most respected and successful scriptwriters at the University of Derby.

Neil's insights into his experience of writing for television and radio were well received by an audience of writers from inside and outside of the county, and the whole day was a terrific opportunity for DSW members and non-memberss to get together and discuss the craft of bringing a story to life through drama.

Just a day later, and our guest speaker was in the audience of the Bafta Television Awards, watching his most recent drama, 'Appropriate Adult' collect three major awards.  DSW would like to thank Neil for his time, the University of Derby for their great facilities, and everyone else who made it a brilliant, inspirational day - here's to the next one!

If you want to hear more about it, join us for June's meeting; we'll be at the Flowerpot Pub again next Tuesday to talk films, plays, scripts, and critique one of our member's works in progress - see you there!
