Opportunity: Climate science radio drama writing for 16-25-year-olds

9th August 2020

We're commissioning young creatives to write short audio pieces responding to the climate crisis

IGNITE is a writing development programme for 16-25-year-old creatives, in partnership with RADA and funded by the Royal Society of Chemistry.

We’ll be commissioning six people (or teams of up to 3) to create short radio pieces inspired by the climate crisis over the course of a series of weekend workshops. If selected you’ll take part in zoom workshops with industry mentors, from playwrights and directors to climate activists and scientists. Your plays will then be performed and recorded as podcasts. Writers will receive a fee of £350 for the project.

This opportunity is open to writers, scientists, spoken word artists, comedians, and anyone else who’s interested in applying! Workshops will all take place over zoom, so is open to applicants from anywhere in the UK.

Application deadline is August 14th at 5pm.
