The Space call out for submissions & script readers for Scriptspace 2018

ScriptSpace, the Space’s feedback/development platform for new writing is back for 2018. The aim of ScriptSpace is to give writers the opportunity to hear their early drafts read aloud by professional actors. The readings are open to the public, and are followed by a supportive feedback/Q & A session. Last year 10 playwrights received play readings and everyone who submitted received written feedback.

What they are looking for: early drafts of one act or full length plays and they only accept work that hasn’t been previously read (to an audience), workshopped or performed.

What’s involved: they aim to provide written feedback to all submissions. If your piece is selected for a reading you would be required to attend at your own expense (dates to be arranged). For this reason, they are currently only accepting applications from UK-based playwrights.

How to submit: Please submit scripts as an attachment (either .pdf or .doc) in an email to scriptspace@space.org.uk with “submission” as the subject title. They can only accept one play submission per playwright.

Please also let them know a bit about your background and experience as a writer. This doesn’t have to be a formal CV or cover letter (although those are fine if you have them!) – they;d just like to know a bit more about you, why and how you write and what your work’s been like so far.

For more information, check out the website.

Script Reading Volunteers: If you would like to join the team of script readers please email scriptspace@space.org.uk with “readers” as the subject title.

Deadline: 2 April 2018 at 5pm
