Ignite is a national playwriting competition aiming to find undiscovered voices for the Scottish Stage. Using a contemporary piece of literature as inspiration, we want you to write a short play scene (not an adaptation of the original source).You have to be Scottish or living in Scotland to apply - closing date 31 August 2006. Full details from the Playwrights' Studio, Scotland. Thanks to BBC Writersroom for the link.
The winner will receive six months focused dramaturgical and directorial support, advice and training to develop their scene into a full length play, which will be given a rehearsed reading as part of Glasgow City Council's Aye Write Festival, in February 2007.
