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: Flux and Tristan Bates Theatre seek shorts for ‘Emerge’ Showcase
Description: After a sellout debut in 2016, Emerge returns. Emerge is a new platform that gives four emerging writers, directors and a company of actors the opportunity to collaborate/showcase their work and gain feedback from an industry panel. They are seeking 20 minute short plays or excerpts for a performance at the Tristan Bates Theatre in July.
What’s so great about it? We love an opportunity that gives writers the chance to gain that ever valuable feedback on their work. This one offers writers feedback from an industry panel, not to mention that the event will take place at the Tristan Bates Theatre, no less. Also great, is that writers can submit either short plays or excerpts from a longer piece – so you don’t need to worry about writing something new if you are already working on a full length project. The only stipulation is that work must be previously unproduced, although do check the full guidelines out here before submitting. You’ve got until 30 April to get your submission in.
