Opportunities – Pick of the Week: Persistent and Nasty seeking female and femme-identifying writers

Each week we look through our pile of writing opportunities to pick out one we think is particularly worth your time. It could be an innovative brief, great prize money, a high-profile company, or just plain fun.

This week’s pick: Persistent and Nasty seeking female and femme-identifying writers

Description: Persistent and Nasty is a platform for female-identified humans working, writing and performing in the stage and screen industry.

They are putting on an evening of new work by female/female-identifying writers. The format of the evening is in two parts. First there’ll be a rehearsed reading of a piece of writing for theatre or film by a female-identified writer. This will be followed by an open forum discussion with an invited industry guest, addressing any issues the work points to and that affect us on a cross-industry level.

What’s so great about it? This is a great opportunity for those female/female identifying writers who currently feel discouraged within the industry to get their work out there and support each other. It’s a chance to work with a creative like-minded team that want to challenge particular gender norms within the industry, as well as having a chance to have your work seen/heard.

The event will be recorded for an accompanying podcast that will serve as documentation of our thoughts, ideas and grievances.

So, if this sounds like the opportunity for you, you have until 15 December 2017 to apply.
