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: The Papatango New Writing Prize is back!
Description: The Papatango New Writing Prize is back! The UK’s biggest annual playwriting award has been remodelled, in a new partnership between Papatango and English Touring Theatre, to support thrice as many artists
Why is it so great? Do you want to be in with a chance of winning £2000, an audio production, and a digital publication with Nick Hern Books? Of course you do! The Papatango New Writing Prize is back for 2021, this time with a new format – although submissions remain free and all entrants will receive feedback, as they usually do. The winning plays will then tour across the UK in free listening stations. If all this sounds fantastic, then make sure you get your application in by the deadline of 7 February 2021.
