Every writer wants to see their story come to life – and Enter Stage Write is offering just that chance!
Along with a £1000 prize for the overall winner, a select number of scripts will be produced and performed at the prestigious Royal Birmingham Conservatoire on December 1st. There will be a judging panel of industry pros – headlined by Head Commissioning Editor of Channel 4, Lee Mason – that work for major British broadcasting companies (such as BBC and Channel 4) who are actively looking for new scripts to produce. Plus, various other patrons of the arts from around the West Midlands will also be in attendance to see the performance of your script.
Along with that, writers have the option to opt-in or opt-out of their script being placed in the Transition Stage Company script database. This is a worldwide database accessible to a wealth of producers, giving each script the chance – regardless of how it does in the contest – to be picked up by a producer that wants to bring it to life.
To enter, create an original and brilliant 7-10 minute script (have a read through with family and friends), and submit it for just £10 here. For just £20 more, participants can have a 1-on-1 coaching session with either of the experienced and knowledgeable professionals Tim Stimpson and Anna Southgate. Of course, you will be allowed to submit an updated version on your script based on these coaching sessions.
The competition is open to British citizens and UK residents who have studied or are studying in the UK. For more details on the contest and Transition Stage Company head here or email firstname.lastname@example.org. A special Coupon Code is also available to anyone who entered the contest last year, valid for £5 off the £10 and £30 submission. The contest closes at midnight November 19th.
Enter. Stage. Write!
