There are two script windows coming up - so get entering.
Sheffield Theatres have a script window, closing on Monday 21st Oct. For info about this, click here. It's an email submission, so it's easy enough to apply. What can you lose?
Kay Mellor Fellowship
The second script window is for the Kay Mellor Fellowship at Leeds Playhouse. The first prize is amazing for this - you'll develop a first draft of a theatre script and create a pitch for TV, as well as a fee of £10,000.
