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: The Yard Theatre submissions window open
Description: Twice a year The Yard opens up submissions for scripts, asking you to send in a 10 page sample of your writing and a single page telling us more about you and your piece. All of these will be read by their core team, as well as a small group of trusted readers. From there they will request full scripts from writers, whose ideas excite them and whose work they think could be a good fit for The Yard’s programme.
What’s so great about it? As The Yard only opens its’ submission window twice a year, we thought it was only right to flag it up! As a London theatre with a focus on providing a platform for writers, it’s really worth considering submitting to if you have a script you’re hoping to get noticed. Whilst there are no promises of production, this is a great way to make a connection with an established company – and who knows where it will lead? You’ve got until 3 December to send in your 10 page sample (but don’t forget to polish up the rest of the script in case they request it later!).
