M6- monologue writing competition

To unlock more short powerful stories from a diverse range of voices and to chronicle this extraordinary period, M6 are launching a monologue writing competition, open to all writers of any experience, under the title: Love in the Time of Corona.

They are offering 10 prizes of £350 each to the competition winners.



  • Your character should be in lockdown and feel compelled to speak. They may be using technology to communicate.
  • Entrants must be over 16 years of age.
  • The submitted monologues or single voice plays should be NO MORE than 10 minutes in length. (Plays that run longer than 10 minutes will not be shortlisted, so do a timed reading before submitting your entry)
  • They must be original, previously unperformed and unproduced.
