Call for submissions


Submissions for 2019 are now OPEN! 

Monologues must be accompanied by the Submission Form which contains all the details: 2019 submission form the monologue adventure

Submissions are open to both professional and non-professional writers.

This year we are extending the genres to include both non-fiction and fiction and experimental genres and comedy is also welcome. The monologues should make a loose and free reference to the theme STORMY SEAS, SAFE HAVEN. Perhaps it is a metaphor for a journey, perhaps a relationship, perhaps a time in your life, or a moment in history.

Submissions are free but are limited to 3 per author.

Key dates for 2019:

Submissions close:  4pm 14 April 19.

Winners notified: Monday 29 April 2019.

Performances: Mother’s Day 12 May 2019, plus Monday May 13.

Tickets on sale: NOW HERE.

Monologues should not have been published before and be 750 words maximum – this means they will be no longer than 5 minutes spoken (last year we had to make a lot of cuts to fit them into the time). Your submitted monologue must be in the first person and be spoken by a woman’s voice.  Monologues will remain the copyright of the author.

Some edits may be suggested for the writers to take on board during the assessment and actors workshops.
