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 Royal Court Introduction to Playwriting Groups for Autumn 2015
Description: The Royal Court Theatre is currently accepting submissions for its Autumn 2015 Introduction to Playwriting Groups. No previous playwriting experience is require. Participation is free of charge and open to all ages, with sessions taking place on Monday evenings for 8 weeks from 21 September 2015.
So, what’s so great about it? What isn’t great about it? The mission of the Royal Court is to nurture and produce exciting new writing, and this is a great opportunity to be part of that tradition. You’ll have your chance to hone your skills with experts in new writing free of charge. They also have a proven track record of using these groups to find new talent, so you never know, this could be the first step towards someday seeing your play on the Royal Court stage. The deadline for applications (including a 10 page writing sample) is 4 August 2015, but best to get yours in early if you can since they normally receive hundreds of applications.
