Fantastic people work at Writer’s Avenue. They’re not only talented, vibrant, helpful and creative, but they’re really nice people. They have enabled me develop as a writer this year with their wonderful input. It’s been great fun pulling my play Seconds up by its boots straps and it’s been due to their enthusiasm and theatre-centric attitude. It is still true that theatre is co-operative at worst and collaborative at best.

It has been exciting, challenging and joyful. Thanks to everyone who voted, the production team, director and cast. You are all brilliant. And special thanks to the industry judging panel for coming along
