Every Monday I host a zoom call with a small group of creative professionals. It's an online membership for those pursuing ambitious goals, and it's called, The People On A Pursuit Community. Some are voice artists, others writers and we have one or two performers.
Whilst this project is only a small side hustle at the moment, it's one of my favourite moments in the week. The culture of the online membership is one of celebrating wins (big or small), overcoming obstacles together and holding each other accountable for the tasks we prioritise.
One of our writers is Emma Kelly. Emma is a dramatist and playwright. In our time of celebrating wins this week, Emma shared that her play 'The Guide' was listed in the top 3% of the BBC Writers Room, Open Call for 2022.
There were 4718 scripts submitted which means Emma was within the top 141 submissions. That's incredible and such an encouragement to Emma.
