Calling all Writers and Directors! The Makeshift Broadcast wants you!

The Makeshift Broadcast is recording its next podcast in early May 2015.

We’re on the hunt for emerging and established writers and directors to work with us on the creation of the show.

Writers 

Makeshift Broadcast would like to read your plays, short stories, comedy routines, poetry, songs and everything in between to include in our arts podcast. We are particularly keen to see radio dramas, or any work that has a strong aural element.

Your submission should include:

  • Your work for no more than 30 minutes of performance for plays / 15 minutes for other forms. We will give preference to pieces with a small number of actors required (less than 4) for its performance for reasons of technical ease.
  • A brief outline of the context of your piece if it is normally longer than what you are submitting
  • A brief history of your work to date and some information about yourself (this is useful for us to get a sense of your work)

Things to consider before submitting:

  • This work will be performed in front of both a live audience and go out as a podcast to listeners. We are particularly interested in including work from artists who have considered the audio audience and how their work will translate without visuals.
  • The work does not have to be new or previously unperformed.
  • There is currently no funding in place for this project, though applications are underway and if successful, terms will be agreed with artists involved.

Directors 

We’d also love to hear from any enthusiastic and skilled directors based in Glasgow.

Please send us your CV, detailing any relevant previous experience and a short statement (max. 2 paragraphs) about how you approach directing contemporary or new writing.

Things to consider:

  • There is currently no funding in place for this project, though applications are underway and if successful, terms will be agreed with artists involved.

For both writers and directors, it will be worthwhile having a listen to our previous podcasts on Mixcloud.

Please send your submission to makeshift.broadcast@gmail.com with the subject “Podcast – May” by Monday 13th April 2015, 5pm. 

The live event will take place in Glasgow in early May 2015.

We can’t wait to hear from you!

Technical support for The Makeshift Broadcast is made possible by Arts Trust Scotland.
