Every year, UK literary agents are invited to send in material for new writers they represent who would like to be considered for the scheme. The writers submitted should have had at least one script produced in theatre, radio, TV or film, but no more than one in film or TV.
We will then announce a shortlist, from which we will choose the eventual winner. Our 2022 submissions window will open in Autumn.
The selected writer will be given a bursary and a desk, computer and phone in the Dancing Ledge offices. They will be invited to attend in-house development meetings, read scripts in development, be offered feedback on their work and given access to writers the company is currently working with.
They also participate in writers workshops we hold every two months with new and established writers.
Plus help us in our ongoing collaboration with local schools providing lectures, and internships for sixth form students from less privileged backgrounds.
