Script Yorkshire logo

Run by writers... for writers.

Originally founded back in 1989 as Yorkshire Playwrights, Script Yorkshire is a charitable organisation run by volunteers and funded entirely through membership subscriptions (we currently have just over 200 members of all levels, from newbies to published writers).


Our mission is to provide aspiring scriptwriters with the skills, industry insight and encouragement they need to develop a career in writing for live or recorded media.


We're lucky to have the support of many successful professionals from the worlds of theatre, film, television and radio, all of whom are extremely generous with their time in helping others develop their skills.
