See You Soon!

We hope that you’ve enjoyed the videos that we’ve posted in the last few weeks. We’ve had a lot of fun making them and will be presenting more videos very soon. For now though, we’ve got to take a short break. When we return though, we’ll have all sorts of new content for you to explore and enjoy.

 

Until we return.

Showcase Your Project!

Well, TWF has been rolling along nicely now for some weeks and I’m looking to begin doing what I originally wanted to do with this site. I want to showcase writers and their various projects. So if you have a project that you are keen to share with people, please let us know, get in touch. We’re looking to do video interviews looking at the projects that writers have going on, advertise on our website and help in any other way we can to get the word out.

So, let us know if you think that we can help to showcase your project.

All the best, Martin

Putting Plays on Stage

You’ve written that wonderful stage play that you’ve been working on. It’s wonderful. So wonderful that you need to share it with the world. There’s just one problem, how do you do that?

Join Martin as he shares his experiences of getting his own plays produced and talks about some of the options available to writers.

What Is Alternate History?

Join Sean Hutchings, John Sayle and Martin Williams as they explore Alternate History and explain just how it is that writers approach this vast and wide ranging subject. Is it all as easy as just asking the question ‘What If?’ Find out in the episode below.
