Verb New Voices

The Arts Council has partnered with BBC MediaCity to offer three writers – one based in the North East, one in the North West, one in Yorkshire – the opportunity to generate vibrant new work which reflects something unique about Northern culture.

 Poets, spoken word practitioners, fiction writers and artists who use words and sound will be given a generous bursary to write a new piece for radio broadcast and live showcase, appearing on Ian McMillan’s programme The Verb.

 Radio 3 voice coaches and producers will work alongside five National Portfolio Organisations to support the performance skills of the chosen artists, who will appear on platforms across the North and digitally in 2014.

 Deadline for submissions: 5pm on Friday 13 December 2013
