Write for Noises Off

APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2020 NOISES OFF TEAM ARE NOW CLOSED.  


 

WHAT IS NOISES OFF? 

We’re looking for exciting arts writers aged 16-25 with big things to say to contribute to Noises Off.

Noises Off is a magazine run by young theatre critics for young theatre makers at the National Student Drama Festival (NSDF), a week-long annual festival for emerging theatre-makers. In 2020, NSDF will be held in Leicester. The Noises Off team publishes exciting theatre criticism, writing, and opinion pieces.

As a writer for Noises Off, you’ll attend festival events and all the performances, writing reviews and articles about the festival. During the festival we publish one print edition every day (for the last day we make a handmade zine) and upload rolling news online. It's a week to work closely with editors, to challenge yourself and to question the industry. We encourage experimental writing and we don't care if you haven’t been published before.

Noises Off supports writers to challenge themselves, and our readers, with life-changingly good criticism and ideas about theatre and the arts. It’s a communal environment for young writers to write together and think together, and a stepping-stone towards professional writing. Writers for Noises Off have gone on to become professional critics.

You'll meet some of the most exciting emerging theatre companies and have the opportunity to attend a programme of workshops, performances and discussions.
