Competition launched to find the next big screen or stage writer!

Bosses from Channel 4 have thrown their weight behind a writing competition that will run across the Midlands this month. It's mission is to give budding TV and theatre writers the chance to get their work performed, published and perhaps even commissioned.

The Transition Stage Company has devised the competition to give aspiring screen and stage writers across the UK the chance to see their work brought to life.

Enter Stage Write is open to anyone in the region to write and submit a seven to 10-minute play. The shortlist mini-plays will then be performed at the Birmingham REP Theatre on September 19 at a glittering night which will see entrants, actors and others enjoy a red carpet reception.

The event will showcase ten shortlisted plays, with cash prizes, trophies, and the opportunity for applicants to have their work published. 

The Transition Stage Company is encouraging all aspiring writers to enter the competition. There is no age limit and 10 percent of profits from the event will be donated to Birmingham Children’s Hospital. 

To enter the competition, visit the Transition Stage Company website and follow the guidelines. Information is provided on how to submit an entry and there is additional info on workshops to assist writers with their writing. The closing date is August 31, 2017.
