Shore Lines Writing for Performance Festival

Wednesday, 22 June 2016


Bunbury’s own writing for performance competition and festival is now open to entrants of all ages from across Australia. Shore Lines, an annual competition and festival, provides a unique opportunity for writers to present their work to a live audience and adapt their craft to the art of performance.

The competition calls for written entries that will be judged on the quality of the writing and its suitability for performance, enabling entrants to explore a wide range of genres including monologues, poems, plays, songs, stories, comedy, hip hop or rap. No matter your age, experience or skill level, all with a passion for writing and interest in performance are encouraged to enter.

Entries are open until Wednesday, 31 August 2016 and will be judged by an expert panel from Edith Cowan University.

Entrants also have the opportunity to develop their performance skills during the Shore Lines Workshop program to be held at ECU in July. If you would like to register for the Workshop program, please download the entry forms and visit the Shore Lines Facebook page for further information.

An Open Mic night will be held on Thursday, 30 June from 6.30pm in the BREC Sky Bar, where you can take your piece for a spin in front of a live crowd. The performance festival will be held at Edith Cowan University's Spring Fair and will feature a selection of new works performed by community members, with the support of Stark Raven Theatre.
