Opportunities: Our Pick of the Week – Theatre N16 Seeking Writers for Draft 3

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: N16 Seeking Writers for Draft 3

Description:  DRAFT is new writing development event for fresh ideas produced by Jordan Blackwood in collaboration with Daniel Cameron & Jamie Eastlake. DRAFT 3 will take place on Friday 10th June at Theatre N16. They’re looking for writers, directors and actors interested in developing new work in an intensive, collaborative environment. Five writers who have new ideas in development will be selected: four of them will be shown as 10-15 minute extracts and one of the ideas will be devised, written and read in one day.

What’s so great about it?  This is different from lots of other new writing performance nights as it focuses on developing ideas. There are two different strands that writers can apply for so that opens things up for a wider range of writers. Stand A  places first draft ideas in the rehearsal room, allowing writers to visualise their characters and be inspired by fresh interpretations. Previous DRAFT writers have enjoyed the freedom to ask questions, discuss their intentions and network with other makers. Writers applying for strand A can send in a 10-15 minute extract for consideration. Strand B is  geared towards writers who have an idea they can’t get off the ground and would benefit from testing out a concept in an open devising space. We think this sounds like a great opportunity for writers to get that push they need to develop their idea further. The deadline is in 6 days so do get in there quickly!
