Ephemeral (adjective) lasting for a very short time. From the Greek word ἐφήμερος meaning ‘lasting only one day’.
New Wolsey Theatre and Wolsey Writers are inviting creative writers across Suffolk UK to contribute to a showcase of original work for live performance in June 2022. We are looking for diverse, thought-provoking responses to the theme: Ephemeral. This is a chance to share your writing with an audience, even if you’ve never written for one before. It’s free to submit.
Do we notice the content we are consuming every day? After we’ve watched, read or listened to a piece of ephemera – do we give it a second thought? If it has a short shelf life, we probably don’t take it seriously. But perhaps we should. A song lyric, for example. A ticket. Or the events of a single day. Some ephemeral things last longer, and mean much more, than they were ever supposed to.
All submissions must, in some way, be a response to the theme ‘Ephemeral’. Possible interpretations can include, but are not limited to:
All submissions must meet one of the following criteria:
A curated selection of new writing will be chosen from the eligible submissions. All submissions must be made via email to email@example.com Enjoy the creative process. Write what you love.
