ENTRIES have been flowing in for the Essex Book Festival’s audio drama writing competition Making Waves. Interest has not ebbed since the competition was launched in July and the deadline is not until 31 October 2013 so you still have time to take part in this free-to-enter Essex Book Festival writing competition.
If you have ever thought about writing drama or sometimes hear a radio play and think ‘I could have written that’ then now’s your chance. The theme of MAKING WAVES is ‘horizons’. Whether you are already a writer or only just beginning to try out your ideas, you can enter the competition and see if you can make a splash as a new voice in audio drama. Entrants are invited to write a 10 – 15 minute piece of radio/ audio drama taking the theme of ‘horizons’ and submit it by 31 October 2013.
MAKING WAVES is open to anyone aged 16 or over who lives, works or studies in Essex and who does not already have a professional broadcast writing credit.
Five shortlisted writers will be selected by an independent judging panel and one winner will be selected by overall competition judge, BBC Radio Drama Producer Jessica Dromgoole
