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 Female Edit call out for female identifying writers
Description: The Female Edit is a female creative collective formed in 2018, with a view to contributing towards the conversation about gender equality through creative work. For their next event, they are looking for work on the theme of motherhood.
What’s so great about it? Last year, to commemorate 100 years since the first woman in the UK was able to cast a vote, The Female Edit curated an evening of work, produced, directed, written, and performed by women at Above the Arts Theatre (The Female Edit:100). This show was a hugely successful night, with a diverse range of female voices, covering a wide range of issues. So with this under their belt, they are looking forward to their next event which will take place at the Chapel Theatre this October. This time, they are looking for work on the theme of motherhood, and we think this is a great opportunity to write about a subject that is often misrepresented – they are hoping for a selection of pieces which are celebratory, that are bold and unapologetic or posit an alternative way of being; an opportunity to re-write the narrative. If you’d like to submit, you’ve got until 21st August to do so!
