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: Little Pieces of Gold seeking short plays on the theme of ‘Education’
Description: Little Pieces of Gold is a regular and well-regarded new writing event that pairs writers and directors to showcase brand new short plays. Their next show is happening on 18 January 2016 at the Old Red Lion, with a theme of ‘An Education’.
So, what’s so great about it? It’s easy to focus on the benefits of big prizes with money attached (which are of course great!) but it’s a bit mistake to overlook the creative and career benefits that come with participating in evenings of short work. Having the opportunity to expand your network of directors and actors is priceless for a playwright, and the short play format gives lots of scope to experiment, challenge yourself, and have fun! If you’d like to see your work onstage – and possibly meet that dream collaborator you’ve been looking for all these years – you have until 20 December to get your script in. So kick off the new year with the creative boost of sharing your work with a supportive audience, and get writing!
