Farewell Richard Nosworthy

A giant of our industry Richard Nosworthy has left us after a lengthy illness bourne with courage and good humour. A stalwart at the IPO for many years and a truly generous human who shared his knowledge and talent selflessly. We send our condolences and love to the Writers Guild of South Africa who were his industry home organisation, We will continue to benefit from the work that Richard did in drafting contracting between the WGSA and IPO. Besides the many hours he spent on strengthening the IPO as part of the EXCO and as a volunteer, he was the key driver behind the launch of the IPO newsletter five years ago and the revitalisation of our social media. Should you wish to attend the Funeral on Friday 22 April at 2pm please attend at St Thomas Anglican Church in Linden or the live streaming link 

The WGSA will honour Richard by adding a WGSA Muse Award in his  name to the 2021 WGSA Muse awards. The WGSA will make a contribution to this award. If anyone else wishes to contribute, please click on this link.
