Call for New Writing for Performed Workshops: See Your Characters Come to Life
Submissions are open for drafts of new writing. We are looking for short stories (up to 1,000 words), poems (2), scripts (15 page max.), and creative nonfiction (up to 1,000 words) drafts for a performed workshop where actors will bring the writing to life. The performed-workshop is open to students, staff, and local writers. Please note, this is a developmental opportunity where actors/readers will interpret your work and perform it script-in-hand.
Date: Thursday, December 14
Time: 6-8 PM
Where: University of Cumbria Lancaster Campus, Alexandra Building 003 (AXB003)
This is a script-in-hand reading. Writers will submit short drafts (short stories, poetry, script, monologue, or creative non-fiction). Actors are asked to read through each draft prior to the workshop. On the day, a group of actors and I will meet from 6-7 to discuss each piece as readers might interpret them. From 7-8 there will be dramatic readings of each piece. After the reading writers and actors can ask questions about process, craft, choices, interpretations, etc…
Refreshments will be provided.
If you are interested in getting involved, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
