HAUNT = a place frequently visited
This training project offers up to five early career writers from the East Midlands the opportunity to write a ten minute dramatic work, set in a location of their choosing. Each will create a finished piece in either monologue or dialogue form (for up to 6 voices), professionally recorded to be experienced by audiences via headphones as a ten minute audio walk of a location, but can equally be enjoyed listening online - either on the move or from the comfort of an armchair!
Each writer is working with New Perspectives over a four month period to identify and develop their piece. The purpose of the project is to enable emerging writers to deepen their sense of place and character, writing for an audio format. The final pieces will be showcased and downloadable from the New Perspectives website.
Applications for Haunts 2018 will open to East Midlands' emerging writers in early Autumn 2019.
Our 5 writers for 2017: JFW Nutt, Leanne Moden, & Lucy Colgan (Nottingham), Jo Woolaston (Leicester) and Susie Hennessy (Lincoln). With Sound Design by Adam McCready.
