 About Us

abi-fran-jen-blue-balls

WRiTEON is an open scriptwriting forum made up of a large and diverse group of writers, actors, directors and producers from the Cambridge region and beyond. We have 50+ writer members and nearly 600 subscribers to our regular newsletter.

What we do:

  • Provide a supportive and creative environment to encourage established and emerging scriptwriters, actors and directors to experiment and develop their skills.
  • Stage regular rehearsed readings – First Stage (formerly Naked Stage) and MaD (Monologues and Duologues) and occasional ad hoc productions.
  • Run a monthly informal script reading group which provides support and critical feedback on new scripts, including screen and radio plays.
  • Organise professionally led workshops and panel discussions for theatre, radio and screen writers, actors and directors.
  • Produce a newsletter including submission, audition and training opportunities for writers and actors in the region, as well as sharing the news, productions and successes of our community.
  • Work with other organisations in Cambridge to foster the vibrant performing arts community of our city.

Our annual report for 2013-14 is available here.

Details of previous events are available here.
