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: Submissions open for The Women’s Prize for Playwriting
Description: The Women’s Prize for Playwriting is an open invitation to all writers who identify as female in the UK and Ireland to create vivid, exciting, and brave new work for the stage.
The aim of the Prize is to celebrate and support women playwrights and to discover the best new work from writers at all levels of experience. They are interested in plays that rejoice in the depth and range of your imagination, that feast on dramatic possibility and are ambitious on all scales and subjects.
Why is it so great? Here’s your reminder for the Women’s Prize for playwriting! Open to all writers who identify as female in the UK and Ireland, the writer of the script which is awarded the First Prize by the judging panel will receive £12,000 in respect of an exclusive option for Paines Plough and EKP to co-produce the winning script. They have designed the criteria of the Prize to allow you to write exactly the play you want, unhampered by restrictions or limitations so it’s definitely worth checking this one out – you have until 12 July 2021 to get those scripts in!
