Six to Start is expanding its slate of immersive New Adventures audio dramas thrilling adventures where you're the main character. Were looking for writers with an excellent ear for dialogue, an impeccable understanding of story and character, and the ability to produce first-class audio scripts to a tight deadline. You'll be reaching over seven million players and joining writers such as Margaret Atwood, Naomi Alderman, and Joanne Harris. If you fit that description, wed love to hear from you!

We welcome submissions from writers of all backgrounds, and we especially encourage those from historically underrepresented groups, including but not limited to women, gender minorities, LGBTQIA+ people, people of colour, people with disabilities, and any intersectional identities. If you feel comfortable, you're welcome to self-identify in your email. A third of the writers we commissioned from our last round of submissions were people of colour, and we plan to do even better this time. Alongside our general submissions track, we're offering additional opportunities to early career writers (more in the application page - linked below).

We pay 460 (~$570 USD) per completed script, and writers are compensated at all stages of script development. This is a work-for-hire opportunity and you will be working alongside us to develop your ideas into viable New Adventures scripts, to which we will own all rights in perpetuity with no exceptions. A full fee breakdown can be found in the Application Guidelines.

This round of submissions will close on June 30th, 2020.

Your pitch submission should include:

  • 13 ideas, each no more than 50 words, included in your cover letter.
  • Two pages of dialogue between two or more characters, in script format. This can be taken from any project, but we prefer that it not be written specifically for this application.
