Yorkshire Playwrights is a democratic, self-help writers' organisation.
A committee, elected annually, runs Yorkshire Playwrights, which
was founded in 1989, from an initiative by Jude Kelly and William
Weston at the West Yorkshire Playhouse, Leeds, Yorkshire.
Membership of Yorkshire Playwrights is open to any writers
who live within the historic boundaries of Yorkshire and/or
the area covered by the Yorkshire and Humberside Regional Arts
Council. You can download an application
Most members of Yorkshire Playwrights are also members of one
of the national writers' organisations, the Writers'
Guild of Great Britain (incorporating the Theatre Writers'
Union), or the Society
of Authors. Potential Yorkshire Playwrights members who
are not already members of one of the national writers' organisations
will be expected to have demonstrated a serious commitment to
the craft of drama.
