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: BBC: The Biggest Weekend seeking comedy monologues
Description: BBC Writersroom and The Biggest Weekend are joining forces to develop and produce four short films across the four nations (England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland), written by you, as part of The Biggest Weekend’s Fringe. They are asking writers to respond to a specific brief about musical festivals by writing a short monologue.
What’s so great about it? This opportunity not only seems like great fun but it also gives the chosen writers the chance to get a BBC credit for their work!
The brief is very specific – they want 60 monologues inspired by their festival cities and you also have to choose from a selection of soundtracks to go with it – so do make sure you read the full guidelines before entering. However, if you’re looking to push yourself to write in a different way or want to take a break from an ongoing project by doing something fun – this one’s for you.
You’ve got until 8 May to submit those one minute monologues, so if you’ve got some spare time this bank holiday weekend, you know what to do!
Read the full details here.
