)-- “The aim of the Nylon Fusion Writers Collective is to provide emerging writers with a structured group for feedback and motivation” said Kate Mulley, Literary Manager for the company. [Elliot Joseph/Ivette Dumeng], Co-Founder of Nylon Fusion further noted, “These writers will extend the Collective's reach into the exciting world of new writing.”
The Writers Collective, which began meeting in March 2010 is the brainchild of Mulley and Joseph who met in London in (2007). Mulley selected each of the writers based on talent, commitment to a life in the theatre and working collaboratively as writers and dramaturgs. The writers were given free rein to write about whatever interested them and the content and style of the plays reflects the artistic diversity of the Collective's writers.
