You can find out about exciting new work, how writers approach their craft, about interesting events worldwide as well as about organizations that help support all of us who are creating new work for children and young people.
We Are a community that wants to hear from you when:
you see a great new play
you have a new work premiering or touring
you want to discuss an issue or ask a question about writing for young audiences
