RealDeal Theatre's next Sitcom Saturday will be held on June 12 2010 at Westminster Reference Library, 35 St. Martin's Street, London WC2H 7HP

The window for submissions will during the month of March 2010. Entries should be emailed to scripts@realdealtheatre.org.uk between Monday, March 1 and Wednesday, March 31 2010 only. No entries will be accepted outside these dates.

RealDeal Theatre is looking for six fifteen-minute sitcoms for Sitcom Saturday, a professionally-directed and acted script-in-hand rehearsed reading, open to the public, at Westminster Reference Library off Leicester Square, London. We allocate a director for each of the selected scripts and the directors then liaise with the writer(s) before a casting session, rehearsal and the performance on Saturday, June 12 2010. Entries are welcome from anywhere as long as the writers can liaise with the directors beforehand and writers must also attend the June public rehearsed reading in London.

If you require further information, please email info@realdealtheatre.org.uk but please see the rules for Sitcom Saturday submissions on the events page http://realdealtheatre.webs.com/events.htm


Writers must be 16 years or older. There is no upper age limit!

CWC are hosting a short story writing competition that is a little unusual.
The concept is to create a superhero character that will develop organically through original ideas from the writing public.

A graphic artist has already created this character and given him a set of background circumstances as a starting point. From there it is up to the entrants to create stories around this character.

A panel of CWC published authors will judge the competition and select the ten best entries.

These will then be turned in to a series of graphic short stories which will be distributed free in the greater London area.

There are a range of prizes from £100 to £10 for the prize winners.

The hope is to interest not only seasoned short story writers but also people who may not have tried writing a story before.

The competition closes on March 30th 2010 and the entrance fee per story is £4.
