Professional support, advice and feedback for scriptwriters
Feedback Fridays takes place every 2 months and gives scriptwriters from the West Midlands the opportunity to receive valuable support and feedback on their work from The Rep’s in-house directors.
From all submissions we select 5 scripts, which our directors and Talent Development team carefully read and review. You’ll then receive detailed and constructive feedback to help you continue to develop your work. We’ll also signpost you to exciting writing opportunities across the West Midlands and beyond so you can further hone your craft.
I was really grateful for the expert feedback on my draft script. I had been working on it for a while and knew there were issues that needed attention, but I needed advice on what the next steps might be. After the brilliant insights I received, I was able to continue getting my draft to a better standard. I can’t recommend the Feedback Friday opportunity enough.”
– Dan Jones
I would say that Feedback Friday was a really great resource for me, it was really clear and constructive and helped me to solidify the direction in which my work was going!”

We’ll need you to submit a synopsis for your script via a simple online application form, which you can access from the links below during the following submission windows:
To be eligible you must:

- never previously have had your work produced by The Rep send us your own original work that has not previously been produced for a 2-week run or longer
We welcome scripts from writers working alone, as well as teams and companies. There will only be 5 scripts selected per window, and we will let you know if your work has been chosen by e-mail. We will be unable to provide feedback to those who have been unsuccessful, however we do encourage you to apply again. Good luck!
