Six to Start- paid audio commissions

Six to Start is expanding its slate of immersive New Adventures audio dramas – thrilling adventures where you’re the main character. They’re looking for writers with an excellent ear for dialogue, an impeccable understanding of story and character, and the ability to produce first-class audio scripts to a tight deadline. You’ll be reaching over seven million players and joining writers such as Margaret Atwood, Naomi Alderman, and Joanne Harris. If you fit that description, we’d love to hear from you!

They welcome submissions from writers of all backgrounds, and we especially encourage those from historically underrepresented groups, including but not limited to women, gender minorities, LGBTQIA+ people, people of colour, people with disabilities, and any intersectional identities.

Alongside our general submissions track, they are offering additional opportunities to early career writers (more in our Application Guidelines – linked below).

They pay £460 (~$570 USD) per completed script, and writers are compensated at all stages of script development. This is a work-for-hire opportunity and you will be working to develop your ideas into viable New Adventures scripts, to which they will own all rights in perpetuity with no exceptions. A full fee breakdown can be found in the Application Guidelines.

Your pitch submission should include:

  • 1–3 ideas, each no more than 50 words, included your email body.
  • Two pages of dialogue between two or more characters, in script format. This can be taken from any project, but we prefer that it not be written specifically for this application.

Pitch submissions are not compensated. If your submission is successful, they’ll pay for you to write a structural outline on one of your ideas as the next stage in the process.
