Falmouth University is welcoming submissions for a writing award with a prize of £6,000.

The 2020 Nick Darke Writers' Award is now open for submissions.

Funded by the university's Academy of Music and Theatre Arts (AMATA) and School of Communication, the award is open to all writers in the UK and Europe aged 16 and over.

It commemorates the life and work of Cornish writer Nick Darke, who was born in Wadebridge and went on to write a series of acclaimed plays.

Applicants must submit a full stage play script with a one page synopsis by 5pm on Monday May 4 2020.

The winner will be announced in autumn 2020 at an award ceremony in London.
