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: #WrAP 2021 write a play this January
Description: You might already know that our annual playwriting challenge is back for 2021 and as usual, we’ll be supporting you to write a first draft (or however much you can!) in January. All you need to do to sign up is be a member of LPW (which you can do for just £3.63!) and click on a link to ensure you receive playwriting inspiration straight to your inbox!
Why is it so great? January is a time for new beginnings and we think most of you will want to shake off 2020! What better way to do this than to get stuck into a creative challenge? If you sign up, you get email prompts throughout the month to guide you through writing a first draft – from the initial idea right through to the final pages! If you can’t commit to writing a whole play in January, don’t worry, even if you just write a few scenes or come up with the seeds of an idea – that’s still a great start to your writing year; plus you’ll have all the emails stored in your inbox to work through when you have the time. We’ll also be opening up our members’ submission window in the Spring where you’ll be invited to send us your #WrAP2021 plays for consideration for our latest development opportunities. What are you waiting for? Sign up now and make 2021 your best writing year yet!!
