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: Sharp Scratches seeking shorts which tackle theme of mental health
Description: Sharp Scratches is an evening of new writing, for their next show this will be at Theatre Deli, The Old Library, London SE5and this time they are looking for short plays, extracts or spoken word which tackle the theme of mental health.
What’s so great about it? Sometimes, writing to a brief can really help to give you a creative boost and we think the theme of mental health is such a worthwhile subject to explore. Not only this, but Sharp Scratches already have plenty of new writing events under their belts so this one, which takes place at Theatre Deli, will no doubt be as successful as the others! They are really keen to hear from writers of all experience levels and they’re also keen to hear from BAME and LGBTQ+ writers. So if you have a short play, an extract or even some spoken word that you can send in, or even an idea you can write from scratch (see what we did there!), you’ve got until 2 February to get your scripts in!
