NE Writers – Apply for Live Writes!

Live Writes

“A North East that writes its own story and fights for a more creative future” – Live Theatre vision

Live Writes is Live Theatre’s brand new series of new writing showcase and development events spread throughout the year with Open Calls for North East based Writers, Directors and Actors. A whole host of opportunities for Theatre creatives of all experiences to flourish in a safe and supportive space. With feedback, networking and championing of the amazing artists of our region.

Each Live Writes event will see four writers have their work directed by four directors and performed by a group of actors – all of whom will be selected from our open windows for writing submissions, director applications and actor auditions. Not only that, we will be opening all of these opportunity windows to North East creatives four times a year.

These are all paid opportunities with rehearsals, tech and performances happening over one crazy day. Every creative will receive the same day fee of £150. For writers, this is intended as a rights fee to perform your work and not a commission fee.

We can’t wait to see your creativity hit our stage!

Writer opportunities

Open to all North East writers of any level of experience. We are inviting you to submit 10 minutes of your work to be performed at our brand new writing showcase and feedback event on our main stage.

Whether you have a short play, a section of a larger piece you might be currently working on or something you wrote years ago, sat on a hard drive collecting digital dust that you’d like to go back to, this is your opportunity to see it on it’s feet in a nurturing, nourishing and supportive space.

You can also receive bespoke feedback from an invited panel of Theatre professionals of whom you can request the precise feedback you wish to receive.

This opportunity is only open to scripts that have had no previous performances or stagings.

Submissions are now open and will close on Friday 17 May 2024 at 10am.
