A Little Bit About
We have witnessed how a little support can go a long way for writers who are at pivotal points in their careers. Being able to take some time to focus on writing instead of pulling pints can prevent a writer’s career from stalling. Some of the writers we have supported at just the right time have gone on to work for major BBC television shows, Netflix, and the National Theatre.
Due to the current crisis, we believe artists will need support more than ever; otherwise we could risk losing many bold, brilliant, and exciting voices. To help during this difficult time our new artist support programme will release over £20,000 to support writers
in the North of England. We are keen to support writers who are caught between the
tricky stages of ‘emerging’ & ‘emerged’
WRITER SUPPORT PLAN
What help is available to you through our new programme, and how to get involved.
As a charity we share responsibility with other organisations to help our industry back on its feet and stand in solidarity with freelance artists at this time of great uncertainty - we are therefore investing over 50% of our charity reserves to deliver this programme.

DON't know us but want to be
considered for support?
We will be launching an open script submission window on our website. We wish to use this as an opportunity to build relationships with writers so we can get to know them and their work better. This will help us understand how we can best collaborate in the future/what support we can give.
We are looking to support writers who:
Were born, raised and/or live in the North of England
Have already completed one full-length script / production/commission
Could work well with us as a company and are interested in our
style of work (please see the Artistic Policy for more info)
Are caught between the tricky stages of ‘emerging’ & ‘emerged’.
Silent Uproar will get back to every writer that applies via the open script submission window. Every script will be read by Silent Uproar’s small core team, and our script reading team made up of associate artists.
