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.
Description: The Royal Court Theatre and Kudos Television production company have created three new Fellowships for writers already establishing a career. The fellowships will offer three writers a £10,000 bursary to support themselves in order to focus purely on their writing for six months.
What’s so great about it? It’s not often you get the chance of a £10,000 bursary to allow you to focus on your writing alongside an opportunity to work with two hugely renown companies (The Royal Court and Kudos). For this one, the Royal Court and Kudos are specifically looking for writers who perceive that there are barriers to getting their work developed and produced in theatre and television because of class, disability, education, ethnicity, gender identity, geography or any other barrier – we think opening the doors for someone who has faced any of these barriers is a great thing! If you want to apply, you’ve got until the 16 November to send your full length scripts in, good luck!
