Making It

I thought today I’d give a quick shout-out for a project that I’m really interested in, and have applied to write for on a weekly basis.  If you’re a young, creative type, I can’t recommend enough that you should check out IdeasTap.  Every year they give out £25,000 worth of funding for projects headed by students and young professionals.  I was even shortlisted last year…

On top of that, they have around 3 or 4 smaller projects per month, from writing/making/photographing something for the Editor’s brief (which can get £300) to attending workshops and events with theatre companies, artists, writers and so on.  Why the picture of Kevin Spacey?  Not just because I think it’s funny how much he looks like the guy from the Orange adverts, but also because he presented the first group of winners with their funding.  Money and meeting celebrities?  Nice.

If you don’t, as I desperately don’t, want to get a 9 to 5, it’s things like this that you need to be looking out for – competitions, funds, columnist jobs etc, anything to distinguish your CV.

Until next time…
