Menagerie Young Writers Development Programme is committed to opening up writing for the theatre to a diverse range of new young voices. Their aim is to discover, support and develop the best first time young writers from the eastern region of the UK and beyond.
They are looking for six first time writers for bursary places on a series of four interconnecting intensive weekend workshops over a period of two months, beginning in April 05.
These workshops will aid the development of a one act play from initial idea through to completed first draft. The plays will be given a script-in-hand performance to the general public alongside work being developed by established professionals at Menageries 'Heat' showcase at the beginning of June 05.
Full details of how to apply are on the BBC's Writers Room website.
