Playwrights' Competition Calendar


Time flies…

Filed under: New Competitions,Random Musings — Gina @ 12:14

It’s March! How did it get to be March? Busier than a busy bee, me, but first a quick heads up; I’ve been updating the calendar and 3 of the competitions I’ve put in are closing in the middle of March (an auspicious day for playwriting judges maybe?). There’s Bristol’s Quick and Dirty comp, Plain Sight want a play for children and the Royal Court’s International program.Β Then take a quick look at the end of the month where you’ve got Papatango, Theatre 503, Salisbury Playhouse, Liverpool’s Page to Stage, Bristol’s Tobacco Factory and Sky Blue Theatre Company. Don’t you come telling me you’re bored!

So, what have I been up to then? Well, I’ve had a birthday (but my hairdresser put my age at 6 years younger so that’s alright), child #1 has had a birthday (I have a 12-year-old – that’s just madness), I took my Mummy to see the Lion King (we both cried – please don’t hate me), I went to see my friend’s play with Descent Theatre at Rich Mix (a great night) and… I think that’s it.

Did I tell you about my rehearsed reading? It’s my consolation prize for being shortlisted for the Adrian Pagan Award and it’s this Thursday in Islington. Gulp! I’m very excited and quite nervous but I’ve been brave and invited lots of cool New Writing folks so fingers crossed that it goes well.

Still sending my book out – 4 no’s so far but I’m keeping it out there, and I think I’m on query draft #658 now so where there’s ink there’s hope.

I’m going to go now and find my sports bra because I’m off to play badminton to try to combat the Writer’s Arse I’m cultivating. Happy writing to you all. X



  1. Good luck with the rehearsed reading, hope it goes well!

  3. Writer’s Arse! I’ve often wondered what was wrong with mine – now I know!

    • For me it was either badminton or buy a new chair, and the badminton option was the cheapest. X
