The Pint-sized Plays Writer's perspective
This year's winner, Nicky Denovan, and last year's winner, Peter Hurd, talk about what winning Pint-sized Plays' Script Slam has meant to them:
Writer of True to You - our 2017 Script Slam Winner
"I just wanted to write to thank you for a fantastic evening of entertainment on Saturday at the Script Slam, and an unforgettable experience for me as a writer. I was absolutely thrilled with the interpretation of my play by Sarah Bishop, Roger Leese and Sarah Sherriff, and I know that a lot of hard work went into making the night happen, not least from yourselves. So, thank you again – and thank you for the indispensable new writing platform that is Pint-Sized Plays. What an achievement it is."
Writer of Casabangor - our 2016 Script Slam Winner
"It's been a great 12 months since winning last year and I've achieved a lot, moving ever closer to making a go of being a scriptwriter.
