In March HighTide asked how they could best support East of England playwrights. In response, they have created Playwrights East, a new region-wide network and skills sharing programme. The first set of free events will be announced soon.
On 11 September they will open a 6-week play script submission window. HighTide will be asking for 20 page samples and offering short feedback to anyone who would like it, regardless of outcome. From those extracts, they will select 6 playwrights to join our inaugural HighTide Writers Group: a paid year-long playwright development programme.
If you’re interested in learning more, join the Playwrights East newsletter (by emailing email@example.com) and you’ll be the first to hear more details when they’re available.
