We’re looking for seven writers over the next three days. Are you one of them?
This year Scissors Paper Pen is helping LaDeDa celebrate it’s 3rd Birthday on Friday December 5th at 6pm with a one-hour festive special, and we’re calling on the fictionalists and nonfictionalists of Canberra to help make the party happen.
The Night Before is an hour of storytelling hosted by Scissors Paper Pen at LaDeDa in Belconnen.
The night before the event, seven writers will be given a theme by us, and they’ll have 24 hours to write the piece they’re going to read at the event the following day. Writers will have about 5 minutes to read their work (so approximately 700-900 words to write), and each piece will also have the opportunity to be recorded later for airing on the Scissors Paper Pen radio show on 2XX.
We’re looking for SEVEN writers to take on the challenge. Interested? To apply, email us your name, age, a bio of 50 words or less, a photo of your mug, and either a link to your work, or attach a story or excerpt of your writing that has appeared online, on air, or in print. The lineup will be announced on the SPP blog on Monday Dec 1.
Email your application on any inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm Friday November 28.
