Aspiring screen, theatre and movie writers given chance to take centre stage with regional writing competition ENTER. STAGE. WRITE
Television moguls have thrown their support behind a competition here in Birmingham to find the next big screen or stage writer. Bosses from Channel 4, including Lee Mason who is the commissioning editor for drama, are throwing their weight behind a screen and stage a writing competition running across the Midlands this month and aimed at giving budding writers the opportunity to see their work performed published and perhaps even commissioned.
‘Enter Stage Write’ is open to anyone in the region to write a seven to 10-minute play and submit it. The shortlisted mini-plays will then be performed at the Birmingham REP Theatre on Tuesday September 19th in a glittering night which will see entrants, actors and dignitaries alike arrive to a red carpet reception.
The red-carpet event will showcase the shortlisted plays, with cash prizes, trophies, and the opportunity for applicants to have their work published. Founder, Actor Natalie Edwards wants all of the winners to get the recognition they deserve.
A guest panel of judges made up of industry experts and business and community leaders will select the finalists. The winning scriptwriter will receive £1,000 cash prize.
The enthusiasm and support from Lee Mason is a massive boost to The Transition Stage company launched last month by Sutton Coldfield-born actor Natalie Edwards who devised the competition called ‘Enter Stage Write’ to give aspiring screen and stage writers across the UK the chance to see their work brought to life.
