Extant is seeking 6 visually impaired writers who would like to develop a piece of writing for the stage, whether from an idea or a work in progress…

We will pair you with a writing mentor during the autumn 2017 who will help to develop your idea or piece of writing, with the aim that a 15 minute extract will be selected from it to be staged as a rehearsed reading early in 2018.

Near the time your 15 minute extract will be rehearsed by a director using both sighted and visually impaired actors, and then your piece will be presented as a showcase of final readings in front of a public audience at the New Diorama theatre London.

To apply please send an email by 28 July 2017 to info@extant.org.uk giving the following information:
*Your name
*Region where you reside
*Description of the piece you wish to write in 200 words
*A sample of your writing (any style) on one side of A4.

We will let successful applicants know by the start of September whether their work/idea has been accepted. Script development time will be from September 2017 – January 2018 and the rehearsals and show case will be in February 2018.
