Playwrights' Competition Calendar


Who wants to write for the BBC?

Filed under: New Competitions — Gina @ 08:30

Applications for the 2011 BBC Drama Writers Academy are now open.

Applicants must have had at least one professional commission in either television, theatre, radio or film.

Writers will need to apply online individually and to submit an original full length sample of their writing.

The deadline for applications is Thursday 5th May 2011.

With a slightly lower profile CAKE is looking for 3 x 3-minute guerrilla theatre pieces by SW writers that will take place on one day in a variety of venues in Falmouth. The same 3-minute pieces will then be performed during the evening, along with one longer piece (30 minute max). Venues to be confirmed. Guerrilla theatre is theatre with a political message. However, they are particularly interested in pieces that contain three characters who are looking for a new experience. Ideally the pieces will not be gender-dependent.

Deadline for submission is 16th May 2011. 

If you would like to submit either a 3-minute or a 30-minute piece, please contact Elaine Ruth White, at
