Did I... ?

I'm not entirely sure whether or not I've already mentioned these two competitions, but they have great prizes and you might have missed the post even if I did, so I'll do them again.

This one is for script writers. The prize is £250 plus performance of your play to an expected audience of 2,000.

This one is for non fiction. The prize package includes an Arvon course, £1,500, membership of The Royal Society of Literature and meetings with an agent and editor.

Both are (as usual) free to enter.

I know I've mentioned this marvellous writing book before, but as I'm a co-author I like to remind people now an then. It isn't free, but it's great value. Amongst many, many other things, it includes lots of information to about writing for competitions.

(I promise the photo is relevant, but admit only in a tenuos and slightly cryptic way.)

  3. I imagine that's another distinct line writing a script - not for me, but can see others giving it a go ... cheers Hilary

    1. I dabbled and decided it wasn't for me, either – but we're all different and others love that form of writing.

    1. It is! I've only been once, but I'll definitely go back next time I'm in the area.

  5. My first book Breakthrough was originally a script that morphed into a book.

    1. That's interesting, Stephen. I'd imagined it usually happened the other way round, though I'm not sure why.

    1. I hope some of my blogging friends will enter, Nas - and I'd love one of them to win.

      Or for it to be me, of course!

  7. Script-writing is something I’m interested in learning how to do.

  8. I started with script writing, although I was never awesome at it. I wanted to express more of what should be happening on stage, and you can only squeeze so much into stage direction. Books are a better fit.
