Six to Start looking for writers to pitch ideas for audio dramas (paid £460)

Six to Start is expanding its slate of immersive New Adventures audio dramas – thrilling adventures where you’re the main character. They’re looking for writers with an excellent ear for dialogue, an impeccable understanding of story and character, and the ability to produce first-class audio scripts to a tight deadline. You’ll be reaching over seven million players and joining writers such as Margaret Atwood, Naomi Alderman, and Joanne Harris.

They welcome submissions from writers of all backgrounds, and they especially encourage those from historically underrepresented groups, including but not limited to women, gender minorities, LGBTQIA+ people, people of colour, people with disabilities, and any intersectional identities.

They pay £460 (~$570 USD) per completed script, and writers are compensated at all stages of script development. There is no entry fee.

Your pitch submission should include:

  • 1–3 ideas, each no more than 50 words, included the body of the submission.
  • Two pages of dialogue between two or more characters, in script format. This can be taken from any project, but we prefer that it not be written specifically for this application.

Deadline: June 30th 2020.
