Where's Leeds/Bradford? North-West or North-East?

Not that I can apply since I moved down here...

Who can apply for this scheme?

The scheme is open to writers based within the North West region who have already had a script commissioned or had a professional reading of their work (for any platform, film, radio, stage, TV or the web) or had material published. You will be expected to be able to work effectively on scripted material from the start of the project. This is not a scheme for beginners.

What counts as a proffessional reading of your work, do you reckon? I've had a script-in-hand reading of a play at a theatre - one of the writers of Emmerdale consulted and it was directed by a BBC producer. A extract of the same play was on at a dramaturgy convention. Is that a professional reading? Can I apply do you think?
