Dear Huntly Writers,

My name is Matt and I am the Co-Director of LUNG. We are a youth focused theatre company that tours across the UK and works at The National Theatre. I wanted to quickly reach out about an opportunity for young people (aged 11-18). I wondered if it might be up the street of some of the young people you work with? 

LUNG, Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and Salamander Street Publishers have teamed up to launch a monologue writing competition called Unmute. This competition is a response to everything that has happened these last 2 years and is centred around amplifying youth voice. We want to hear from any young person who has a burning message they want to share with the world. Winners will have their monologues performed by students at Bristol Old Vic and their monologues will be published by Salamander Street in an anthology. The deadline is This Sunday (Sunday 8th May.)

Please share this opportunity with any young people, schools or youth-led organisations you work with. The easiest way to do this is by sending them this link:

Alternatively, there is a post on Twitter here:
