As well as individual playwrights, we work with a wide network of national and international new writing organisations, producing theatre companies, national cultural and educational institutions, trusts, foundations, funding bodies and members of the public. We work in collaboration with, and as advisors to, artists and theatres throughout Scotland and internationally, always for the benefit of Scotland's playwrights.

Please note that this list is not exhaustive and we are continuing to develop and expand this page. If you find any links are outdated or are no longer active, don't hesitate to contact us.
