Scriptwriters & Co accepting submissions for online scratch night

Scriptwriters & Co’s submissions window is open to writers anywhere in the world. This time they’re looking for original plays, screenplays or audio plays of 8-10 pages, on the new theme of ‘COMPETITION’.

It’s free to submit. The prize? Up to eight winning pieces will be performed on the night by professional S&Co Actors, in front of a supportive online audience, with judge’s notes and constructive discussions led by Zanna Cardash and Alex Hollister after each performance. It’s a great place to test your work and meet new contacts.
