Playwrights' Competition Calendar


Valentine’s Schmalentines.

Filed under: New Competitions — Gina @ 15:51

There’s a fun call out for scripts for Love Bites “Anti-Valentine’s Night”. They’re looking for short (under 15 minute) plays, preferably black comedies, for their night of new pieces, but I’m afraid the closing date is 8th February so write fast.

If you need help with writing shorts Anna Jordan from WAP Theatre has written an interesting blog post on this subject.

I’ve also added a couple of new comp.s to May: The 2012 Papatango New Writing Festival is offering two playwrights the opportunity to have their play produced at The Finborough Theatre, and The People’s play Award in association with New Writing North is looking for an exciting new play to be produced at the People’s Theatre in Newcastle upon Tyne.

If you’re eagerly anticipating the new series of Newsjack you might want to listen to this podcast with, among others, Gareth Gwynn about writing comedy sketches for TV and radio.

That should keep you busy for a while.
