Box of Tricks will match 6 pairs of Pen Pals for a six month period from February until August 2022. Each pair will send each other work-in-progress and maintain regular contact through online meetings.
Box of Tricks will introduce Pen Pals online, discuss their ideas at the start of the process, and meet again for a midway catch-up. Prior to the end of programme, there will be an opportunity to share extracts at an online Scratch Night. At the end of the exchange, all 12 Pen Pals will send their drafts to Box of Tricks to be read ahead of a final debrief and feedback session.
- Pen Pals programme is open to writers at all stages of experience and they will aim to match you with a writer at a similar level.
- Writers must be members of Box of Tricks’ PlayMakers Network
- Writers must be either resident in, or originally from, the North of England.
