CROSSOVERS
Are you a playwright, performer, screenwriter, live artist,

poet, prose writer or a journalist?

Would you like to develop a new piece of work for the stage and see it presented in October 2010?
Theatre Writing Partnership are offering six writers/artists a supported process to help develop their ideas for new plays. With a bespoke team of creative mentors, directors, actors and other artists, we’ll help you develop the script and present a sharing of your work at our Momentum festival 2010. We’re excited about supporting and showcasing a dynamic mix of writers who approach their writing in different ways and want to explore the dramatic potential of the stage.
Deadline for submissions: 12 February 2010

EARS WIDE OPEN
A virtual salon of aural sensations; a wooded glade in mid summer, dappled with sunlight and equipped with headphones; a warm cosy space with sofas and cushions; a listing in your i-tunes library: Ears Wide Open can be all these things and more.
Theatre Writing Partnership and Writing West Midlands are collaborating to commission two Midlands writers to create theatre for the ear. Soothing, titillating, terrifying and intimate, Ears Wide Open will offer you solitary and communal experiences, manipulating your mind by triggering your imagination. Details of the commissions are on our website, where you can follow the progress of the commissioned writers and artists, and contribute to/participate in the experience of theatre for the ear.
Deadline for expressions of interest: 26 February 2010
