Opportunities – Pick of the Week: Talawa script reading service now open (Black writers in the UK)

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: Talawa script reading service now open (Black writers in the UK)

Description: .Talawa’s script-reading service for script submissions from Black writers in the UK (people of African and Caribbean origin) is now open.

What’s so great about it: Talawa has a history of nurturing and collaborating with outstanding writers like Roy Williams, Derek Walcott, Jackie Kay and Malorie Blackman. Talawa is now developing the next generation of Black British writers such as Arinze Kene, Somalia Seaton, Theresa Ikoko and Inua Ellams. So if you’re a black writer (in the UK), then now is your opportunity to send your script in! Every writer who submits gets a written report  so this is a great chance to get some valuable feedback. The submission window is open until 31 January.
