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: Little Pieces of Gold open for submissions of 10 minute plays
Description: Little Pieces of Gold was set up in 2010 by Artistic Director Suzette Coon, and since then has produced the plays of over 100 playwrights at leading new writing venues. They are currently seeking 10 minute plays for their upcoming showcase, to accompany Theatre503’s production of Sarah Hehir’s Child Z.
So, what’s so great about it? Little Pieces of Gold has a great reputation for quality. While writers come from a range of backgrounds, many have won awards or had attachments or productions, and there’s a sense of excitement and ‘buzz’ around the emerging playwrights they showcase. The company also works to build relationships with writers, connecting them with directors, introducing them to literary agents, and even facilitating long-term creative collaboration. (For instance, Sarah Hehir worked with Little Pieces of Gold on a short play and in development workshops for Child Z prior to this production.) So if you’re selected, it’s a great way not only to get your work seen, but also to build links with other emerging practitioners in the new writing scene. There’s two weeks until the deadline on 27 April, so better get writing!
