Daniel Owen Writing Competition Launch

See dates and times  

This competition has been part of the Daniel Owen Festival for many years and in that time some amazingly talented young writers have had their work performed at the Festival.

The next Theatr Clwyd Young Writers Competition for 14 – 30 year olds has been moved to 2021 with an entry deadline of 22 February 2021.

Send in your writing pieces to us at Theatr Clwyd. They should be short scripts and/or concept (No more than 6 pages long) with a idea of what this piece would be if it was developed. This opportunity is about seeing potential, a fresh idea and we want to hear hidden stories from new writers.

We invite you to send in your entries to alice.evans@theatrclwyd.com

The shortlisting for the winning concept for a script, concept or creative writing piece will take place during February. The three winning entries will be announced on 19 March.

The winners will be commissioned and paid a fee of £200 and supported over 3 months to prepare, develop and edit into a 10 minute piece to be performed by professional actors at Theatr Clwyd in the Daniel Owen Festival in October 2021. This opportunity is about seeing your work in a scratch night celebration at the theatre and/or on a digital platform. We want to give a professional platform to new work and give emerging writers an opportunity to be nurtured through this process.
