Script Reading Service

Are you a Black British playwright? We want to read your story. 

  • Our script submission window is open till 30 June 2018.

  • How it works

    • Send us your script using the option below - click the button which will call up an email window, add your script and a short cover note
    • We'll confirm that we have received your script
    • Your script will be read by one of our team of script readers, who will report back to our Literary Associate in our Readers’ Meeting

    You will either receive a detailed script report or, if your script is selected for further development, you will be invited to come in and meet with us.

    Please note - this process takes three months. It may take slightly longer if your script has been shortlisted and recommended for a full read by our Literary Associate.

    " ... there aren’t very many routes into this out of reach world ... Talawa look for us, they seek us out and take the time and care needed to build us up in all the ways that truly matter."

  • Somalia Seaton, Talawa Writers' Programme Writer

    "Talawa has been an integral part of my growth as an artist and writer, gaining confidence in both my voice and place at the table … the springboard … a safe haven for me, full of encouragement and belief."

  • There are many ways to get involved with Talawa - as a writer, theatre maker, facilitator or creative.
