opportunity for Playwrights with Write now one-act play festival

Since 2010 WRITE NOW have staged twenty-six brand new one-act plays, offered over one hundred performances across a total of thirty days bringing you some of the finest new writing on Merseyside (and beyond)

And now we’re gearing up to do it all again with Write Now 2013!

But 2013 will be a little different from our first three years; we are looking to be a little more playwright-centric as well as offer a platform for performers, directors and technicians.

WN4 will see each invited piece receiving a first performance followed by a post-show discussion, it is hoped the discussion will prompt possible changes, rewrites and so forth which will then be taken into the rehearsal space for a re-work workshop. Following this, the piece will receive a pre-show discussion to bring the audience up to speed about the process and then a second performance.

Submissions will open for Write Now 2013 from Tuesday 01 January 2013 and close on Friday 29 March 2013

The festival itself will also be moving, taking place at Liverpool’s Unity Theatre, Hope Place between Tuesday 17 and Saturday 21 September 2013

Keep an eye on the Write Now website for more news and submission guidelines soon to be added.
