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: Brave New Word accepting short pieces for ‘Break Up Britain’
Description: Brave New Word brings actors, writers, and directors together to experiment with new work. They are currently seeking submissions for their September event inspired by Brexit.
What’s so great about it? Brave New Word particularly encourages first time writers, and submissions are only five minutes in length, so if you’re in the early stages of building your playwriting career this is an ideal opportunity. Also, if you found yourself with more ideas than you could use for our recent Pick of the Week featuring Little Pieces of Gold’s Brexit callout, this is an opportunity to develop another another idea on this theme. (Note that the length requirements are different for the two evenings, so you won’t want to submit the same piece to both opportunities.) Submissions close on 5 September at 9am, so time to hop to it if you want to submit!
