The Musical Theatre Writing Challenge

Come What May is a month-long writing challenge to help generate work and keep the creative juices flowing!

Once you sign up you will receive creative writing prompts every weekday (Mon-Fri) during the month of May. Your goal is to make it to the end. Simple! On Monday-Thursday you will be given a daily task and 36 hours in which to complete it. On Fridays you will receive a bigger task.Each prompt will either be clearly adaptable to your particular skill, or have clear instructions on how to approach it.

Your responses to the prompts can be whatever you like, as long as they follow the brief provided each day. But it’s important to remember that your writing is not being judged by anyone. This challenge is about practice not perfection. It’s about turning up each day and getting something concrete onto the page. Remember – the work doesn’t have to be good, it just has to be. This is not a competition but a challenge to yourself.


The Musical Theatre Writing Challenge will have an online presence (FB, Twitter and Instagram) where you can chat with the organisers and other Musical Maykers. They’ll also offer a variety of chats and online talks with writers to help inspire you throughout the process.

We will also have a weekly writers room (via Zoom) where you can share a virtual office and write alongside your fellow makers.
