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: This year, we’ll be inviting all #WrAP2020 participants to submit their work to us. Up to 4 writers will then be selected to take part in our brand new development programme ‘London Playwrights 2020’, where we will provide mentorship, dramaturgical support, professional advice, and masterclasses. The programme will culminate in a rehearsed reading in front of industry professionals in late 2020 (dates TBC).
What’s so great about it? Here we go again, making our own stuff the Pick of the Week! But please bear with us, you absolutely need to know about this opportunity! As you may of heard, we’ll be running our annual writing challenge again this January, where we’ll be supporting you to bash out a first draft of a new play in just a month. This year though, there’s a twist – we’ll be inviting #WrAP2020 participants to submit the work they come up with in January to us for consideration for London Playwrights 2020, our new writer development programme. Selected writers will offered a whole host of support over the course of 2020 to help them to develop their #WrAP2020 plays. In addition to this, all writers who submit will get some feedback on their submissions. We’ll be asking #WrAP2020 participants to send us their work-in-progress scripts (even if not completed!) by mid February, but full submission details will be sent out to those taking part at the beginning of January.
