We are excited to discover new work that explores how we live in Leeds, in Yorkshire and in the World.
We have an open reading policy for scripts written by writers born, raised or currently living in Yorkshire. These scripts can be sent to us during two reading windows each year.
In 2017, the Script Window will be open from Monday April 3rd to Friday April 28th and from Monday October 2nd to Friday October 27th.
So we can process, read and respond to all the scripts we receive, our unsolicited windows have specific criteria and we are strict about the way in which we scripts are sent to us.
Please read this page carefully before you send us work.
To submit a script, you must complete our online form here.
