How would you like to become a Short+Sweet script assessor?

Short+Sweet receives thousands of script submissions from all over the world every year. Each script is read between three and five times as part of our Assessment Process, hence, we are always on the lookout for experienced writers, teachers and theatre professionals to join us as Script Assessors.

Why become an assessor.

Assessing scripts is a great way to develop your critical evaluation skills and to keep abreast of what’s happening in international theatre. S+S receives an enormous variety of scripts from all over the world and no genre, style or subject area is left untouched.

  • Read plays from all over the world and discover what’s happening in theatre
  • Gain ideas from other writers which you can inspire and inform your next script/production
  • Help the arts by creating interest in theatre and scriptwriting
  • Give playwrights the chance to have their scripts assessed fairly and thoroughly
  • Create opportunities for great new work to be staged.
