She Writes introduces

Today a new section went live – the ‘She Writes introduces…’ page.

She Writes is 17Percent’s showcase event, currently held about every two months, where we showcase short plays by women writers. So far we have held two nights, 12 October and 7 December, both of which were well attended and a lot of fun! You can find out more about the She Writes project on the She Writes blog, and a full list of all the writers whose work has been performed.

The She Writes introduces… page will give you more information about the playwrights, contact details if you want to get in touch and link to the plays showcased at She Writes.

The next night is on 21 March 2012, it has an international theme. Venue: The Horsebridge cafe, The Horsebridge Centre, Whitstable, Kent.

Female playwrights wishing to submit work should bear these things in mind:

– No longer than 6 minutes please (this is probably no more than 6 pages long)
– No more than 4-5 characters unless doubling
– As minimal as possible. We perform in quite a small space, and lots of props take up too much room!
– Deadline 14 January. Please email your submission to
