Call for New Writing from the Contact Theatre
The New Writing/New Work Department are looking for submissions for their monthly pitch parties.
The title RAW: Rhythm and Words in Theatre emphasises the fact that Contact's new writing department will concentrate on all forms of writing for theatre including lyrical writing, and experiments with other artists, as well as plays. Each month we have a pitch party whereby we discuss submissions from writers and artists.
All we ask is for you to either send in your idea with a sample of your writing (we read the first ten pages), the sample of your writing could be your best writing, poems, raps, lyrics, short stories or whatever your form you write in. We'll then decide whether we can develop your ideas further. We're looking for all kinds of people to submit whether you've ever written for theatre before or not.
