28 (29) Plays Later

Year 6

February, 2020


In need of some creative ideas or just need to get back into the habit of writing? This is a do-it-yourself version of our annual playwriting challenge to write a play a day in February.


Whether you are into Pinter or Panto, Chekov or Chicago, we are looking to inspire you to achieve theatrical greatness and create new work for the stage.


You know nothing about plays? Fantastic! Everyone starts somewhere, right? Jump right in! You’re an old hand at writing for the stage? Awesome! Each playwriting challenge will take your skills into new, fun and fascinating territory. 


Come and join our community if you are looking to challenge yourself, experiment and take risks, spice up your own creative writing style or practice new skills and methods.

"One of the most unexpected outcomes was just how much happier I felt overall from carving out time to write every day. I can't wait to take part again."


So, how does it work?        

Purchase a copy of the challenge and you get a booklet with 29 daily creative writing briefs. You can even chose to submit your plays to us, for more accountability.

Make it all the way to the end, and you become a god.


"So glad I signed up to it. Massively surprised I finished it. Not ever really thought of myself as a writer, but I'm full of ideas I want to begin to develop."


The Literal Challenge offers different challenges throughout the year, focusing on playwriting in February, prose in June, screenwriting in October and more.
