Original Monologue

About Original Monologue 

9 - 12 Years Old

Each contestant will write and submit an original monologue (individual dramatic speech) of up to 3 minutes when performed. Shortlisted entries will have to be acted out in front of our panel of judges, but writers are allowed to nominate another person to perform in their place. 

This is a writing competition where entries are judged based on their originality, content and use of language. While the performance may help to realise a piece’s dramatic possibilities, the quality of the delivery will not affect the scoring in any way.
