Playwrights' Competition Calendar


BBC Writersroom – Stop press!

Filed under: Reminders — Gina @ 22:07

The Writersroom have changed their dates, and the window is now not opening until February 14th and will close on March 29th.

They’ve also decided they will be accepting radio plays because the next Writersroom window probably won’t be until the Autumn but it can’t be anything already submitted to the Writer’s Prize.

Good advice from them:  we want to give you as much notice as possible about the next window, because we want to give you as much time as possible to develop and hone and polish your work – hence putting back the opening of the window until Valentine’s Day. We think some of you are desperately trying to fling submissions in before the deadline each time – which is understandable, but doesn’t necessarily (perhaps necessarily doesn’t) make for great scripts in the end. Which is another way of saying – there’s no point sending in something you know isn’t ready or you know isn’t as good as you can make it – because we’ll probably feel the same way, and then the chance for that idea with us has gone …



  1. Hi Gina
    Thanks for all the posts so far. It’s kept me interested in writing and submitting to deadlines.

    I’ve finally gotten my first play together and am directing it myself. It’s about two playwrights writing a play together!. And it’s on from next Tuesday at the Hen and Chickens Theatre in London. Part of the new writing One Hand Clapping Festival which started this week.

    Fellow writers might be interested in seeing it! It’s only 45 minutes long!
