WOMEN IN LOCKDOWN 

27th April - 29th May

"There is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind." - Virginia Woolf

This is not the first time in history that women have been isolated behind closed doors and it won't be the last. In these extraordinary times, we asked writers to respond to the theme 'Women in Lockdown' and generate stories of women facing and overcoming restricted lives. 

Every weekday, we will be posting one of our 25 winning short pieces by astounding and imaginative writers, handpicked from over a 1000 submissions.

 

Some of the UK’s best locked-down female actors will be self-taping and breathing life into these fresh and original characters, creating bite-sized videos available here to watch for free.

SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED FOR 2020
