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: Live Theatre & Northumbria University Writer in Residence 2018-19
Description: Live Theatre and Northumbria University are partnering to offer a £20,000 stipend to an experienced playwright for their twelve-month Writer in Residence opportunity. This will involve working with programmes at both institutions, and will be tailored around the selected writer’s needs and interests.
What’s so great about it? Essentially, this opportunity offers a year-long salary to be a playwright – a pretty fantastic setup in our view! And equally importantly for what can be a rather lonely process, it offers a community of collaborators to work with and learn from. If you’re keen to apply, make sure to get that application in before the deadline on 20 April!
