New Writing Competition

Show off your writing skills in our First Break new writing competition.

May 2014 will see the return of First Break our annual new writing festival which showcases emerging theatre companies and writers in the region. The festival will take place Wednesday 7 – Saturday 10 May. We’ll have more information on the line-up in the New Year.

As part of the festival we have teamed up with Oldham Council Libraries in a search to find new talented writers.

We are asking writing enthusiasts to send us a dramatic monologue, up to 2000 words, exploring the theme of identity. A selection of these will be read by members of the Coliseum’s acting Company at a special event at the Coliseum Theatre on Wednesday 7 May.

Entries for the First Break Writing Monologue Competition should be posted, (2 hard copies please) to: First Break Writing Competition, L.E.D., Oldham Coliseum Theatre, Fairbottom Street, Oldham. OL1 3SW

Deadline for receipt of entries is Friday 21 February 2014. Please note that entries sent by email will not be accepted.
