Opportunities: Our Pick of the Week – Gillian Hush Award for Radio Drama

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: Gillian Hush Award for Radio Drama

Description: The Gillian Hush Award provides the financial support for the selected writer to attend a residential course on Radio Drama with the Arvon Foundation, taking place from 2-7 November 2015 at The Hurst in Shropshire.

So, what’s so great about it?  Writers rave about the Arvon experience, which provides the opportunity for intensive creative development in a beautiful setting, with personal access to top-notch tutors.  The full course fee normally runs at £725, so this scholarship provides an opportunity for writers with financial need to be able to fully partake in this amazing experience.  If you have an interest in writing for radio – which has been prime training ground and provided breakthrough opportunities for many leading dramatists – this could be your start.  To have the chance to work with tutors Anjum Malik and Peter Leslie Wild, get your application in by the deadline on 1 September 2015.
