Radio drama opportunity for disabled writers
We know that there are a lot of you out there trying your hand at writing, so the following will definitely be of interest to you.
Graeae, the theatre company for disabled people, is working alongside BBC Radio Drama and the BBC's new writing initiative, Writersroom, to offer talented disabled writers with an entertaining and original voice the opportunity to take part in an expenses-paid, week-long residency on writing audio drama, which will take place between 25 February and 1 March 2008. It will be at The Hurst in Shropshire, and run by The Arvon Foundation.
To apply, you need to write a five to ten minute drama - for stage, screen or radio - inspired by the title 'LOVE BITES'. Applications must be received by Friday 7 December, and should include your contact details and a short biography of your writing experience.
Successful applicants will be notified by Friday 21 December, though they're unable to give feedback to unsuccessful entrants.
Here's what you need to do.
Send your completed scripts to firstname.lastname@example.org, or post them to: BBC Writersroom, 1st Floor Grafton House, 379-381 Euston Road, London NW1 3AU. And to make sure it ends up in the right hands, please make your envelope clearly with GRAEAE.
Time to get your writing brains in gear, folks.
