TIME is running out to be considered for this year’s Salisbury Fringe, the first of its kind to be online.

Because of the Covid-19 pandemic the Fringe will be going virtual on October 4, and the team is currently looking for four mini-dramas, duologues and around ten monologues to create the line up, to be performed by professional actors.

Fringe organiser Brian MacReamoinn said: “Salisbury Fringe is going virtual this year owing to current circumstances, and there are plenty of opportunities for writers based in the Salisbury area and surrounding regions to be part of this unique occasion.”

Writers are reminded that their work should be tailored to suit a Zoom call or online performance.

Deadline for entries is Sunday, August 23.

As part of the festivities writing coach Angela Street will be leading socially distanced dialogue workshop 'Bourne to Write' later this month, designed to challenge writers both at novice and experienced level.

Taking place on August 27 and 29, participants will explore the grounds of Bourne Hill House and have time to write in the open air, influenced by their experience and surroundings.

Writers will then have the opportunity to submit their 'secret garden'-inspired work to be performed during the Fringe.
