Members receive regular newsletters giving them details of writing opportunities, competitions, courses, etc., and an individual profile opportunity on the web site. 
By becoming a member of the Playwrights’ Co-operative you also become eligible to submit plays to be considered for publication. Membership does not guarantee publication, as all submitted plays are subjected to a reading process whereby they are examined from three different perspectives:-

  1. By an established Playwright;

  2. By an experienced Theatre Director;

  3. By a Theatre Critic.

This reading process is vital to our success as it ensures the market place that we have a quality product on offer. If accepted, the Co-operative covers the full cost of publication.
It should be made clear that The Playwrights’ Co-operative and New Theatre publications are totally against any form of vanity publishing.

If you wish to know more about the Co-operative, or wish to apply for membership, please email us with your request giving full details of your name and a postal address. We’ll send you an information leaflet.
