It is with regret that Tinderbox has to suspend its free script reading service until further notice. We know how valuable this resource was to writers across Northern Ireland and beyond, but due to the recent funding cuts we currently do not have the resources to read and provide professional written feedback on all the scripts submitted.
We will be exploring new models of working and supporting writers and theatremakers from and living in Northern Ireland, so we still want to hear from you as we embark on many exciting upcoming projects. The Tinderbox Dramaturg Hanna Slattne will continue to be an integral part of all our processes and can be contacted by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
