White Rabbit is Bernadette Russell and Gareth Brierley- a multi award-winning arts organisation which creates films, podcasts, theatre and immersive live lit /storytelling events.
We are writers and performers who are passionate about stories and storytelling. We are delighted to be working with Revelation in Ashford to create two immersive live lit evenings of short stories on the theme of WONDER.
We are inviting short story submissions inspired by the theme of WONDER, with a maximum of 1500 words in any style. Priority will be given to Kent writers or writers with an association with Kent.
We will select stories from the submissions to be performed live on two consecutive evenings by our team of professional actors, in the candlelit environment of the beautiful and ancient St Mary’ Church (referenced in the Doomsday Book in 1086!).
We look forward to this event being a great opportunity for Kent writers to showcase their work. As writers you need do no more than submit your work, once it is selected then you can come along to the event, relax and enjoy the show!
Deadlines for submissions are: Midnight on 14th February 2020. Please submit your stories on the theme of WONDER to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading WONDER. Please ensure your name is on each page of your story (in the header or footer if possible)
The shows are 21st and 22nd March 2020 at 7.30pm.
We are also hosting two FREE writing and performing workshops- the first being on 9th November- a chance to be inspired by the beautiful church and graveyard and to have a space to write! Details are here
