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: The Alfred Bradley Bursary Award is offering a £5,000 writing bursary and the chance of a Radio 4 drama commission to Northern writers new to radio. You don’t need to write a radio drama to enter, but you do need to demonstrate a fresh and original writing voice.
What’s so great about it? This is a fantastic opportunity for all you budding radio writers living in the North of England. Not only does the winner get a £5000 bursary but they also get the chance of a Radio 4 drama commission and a 12 month mentorship with a Radio Drama producer. If you’d like the chance to get your work on Radio 4’s afternoon drama slot then get submitting! You can send in any script (it doesn’t have to be for radio) as long as it’s original, so what are you waiting for? You’ve got until the 9 November to apply!
