Due to Covid 19 lockdown regulations, applications for CNW 2021 remain CLOSED.



Applications for CRITERION New Writing 2021 will open, we hope, early in 2021.


Anyone on my friends and colleagues mailing list will be notified. It is FREE to apply and take part.


If, when we reopen, you wish to apply, please send a single document (file name your name) including:


- a writing CV, including two referees

- a short statement of 200-250 words explaining why you would like to take part

Send by email to gregmosse@gmail.com.

Each CNW group will welcome 6 writers to the stage of the Criterion Theatre, Piccadilly, for a sequence of six highly-focused script development sessions, from 12h00 to 14h30. The calendar of sessions remains undecided for the time being:

Actors will be present to read the brand new monologues and scenes on stage in weeks 3, 4, 5 and 6.


Now and then we will welcome industry guests - directors, producers, other writing development professionals and so on.

(Travel expenses of up to £20 per session will be available on presentation of receipts.)
