Opportunity for 16-30 year old writers in the North, New Creatives North


New Creatives North, an exciting new scheme funded by the BBC and Arts Council England, which supports emerging and up and coming creatives aged 16-30 in the North of England is looking for writers who may have a piece of writing that could become an audio work.

We’re particularly interested in writing that represents creative storytelling in its broadest sense. We want stylistic innovation – for you to push boundaries and to create works that can surprise listeners with their inventiveness and ingenuity. We’re interested in works ranging from the very short – micro-storytelling of 1 minute or less - to audio pieces of up to 15 minutes. Works can be episodic stories, soundscapes, audio storytelling and can include spoken word, performance, drama, music, sound art, and any or all combinations that convey the idea in the best way.

Don't worry if you have never created audio work before, if selected we will support you with funding, mentoring, development, technical skills and support from industry experts.
