LoveBytes: Young Playwrights can win a place at the Fresh Ink Studio

love bytesAspiring playwrights between the ages of 14 and 26 have the exciting opportunity to win a place at The Voices Project’s Fresh Ink Studio for a week of writing, led by some of Australia’s best playwrights. And also an iPad.

Writers need to produce a three minute video – a monologue – about love, in any or all of its forms. It isn’t a requirement to be an exceptional filmmaker; Fresh Ink Australia just want to hear the voice of their writers.

Workshops will take place in September, or January for those who are under 18. Writers do not need to be good performers as they will be offered advice or given actors to work with; they do not need to be experienced playwrights, as advice on playwriting will also be offered to the winners. Writers are encouraged to think about love and what they want to say about it within the three-minute guideline.

Requirements, guidelines, and further inspiration can be found at http://freshinkaustralia.com/

Entries are due by 5pm on Friday 4th May.
