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.
Description: To celebrate the publication of their first collection with Oberon Books and Pokfulam Rd’s 5th birthday, Pokfulam Rd Productions is looking for short plays based on Chinese/East Asian stories.
They are looking for short pieces (maximum 15 minutes in length) that in some way portray, discuss, or feature East Asian themes, stories, communities, histories, individuals…
As part of “Foreign Goods 3”, the plays will be part of a showcase, and will also be part of the launch of “Foreign Goods: A Collection of Writing from British East Asian Artists” curated by Pokfulam Rd Productions artistic director Jingan Young which will be published by Oberon Books in January 2018.
Writers can be of any background. (Unfortunately this will be unpaid as they are an unfunded company and their profits from the previous showcase will go towards booking the venue.)
What’s so great about it? Not only is this an opportunity to get your work produced, but it’s also a chance to get your work published by one of England’s most prestigious publishers!
If chosen, your work will be put on as part of a showcase with a panel discussion at the end, meaning you will be able to receive feedback from the audience as well as taking part in an active discussion of your play.
This is an incredible opportunity for new writers, producers, directors and performers to meet the network of creatives at Pokfulam, and to connect with others interested in furthering representation of East Asian artists on stage.
So, if this sounds like the opportunity for you, you have until 10 November 2017 to apply.
