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: Applications now open for Year 5 of Tamasha Playwrights
Description: Tamasha Playwrights is a writer-led collective of emerging playwrights from diverse cultural backgrounds. Writers meet for weekly sessions in Tamasha’s office from October to July.
Now in its’ fifth year, Tamasha Playwrights is a scheme which aims to offer long-term career development in a supportive environment to emerging playwrights from culturally diverse backgrounds.
What’s so great about it? This programme puts professional development at its’ heart and empowers writers to take the lead on their own projects and to make a living as artists.
During the sessions, participants will explore all aspects of creating their own theatre projects, from playwriting to self-producing to fundraising and more.
We think this programme sounds like an invaluable way for new writers to gain the professional experience they need. If you think so too, you’ve got until 28 September to apply and you’ll need to send them a full length play to do so!
