Crunchy Leaf is looking for stories with a focus on the climate emergency

We are looking for new work centered around the climate crisis. It has been unequivocally declared by the IPCC that climate change is human-caused, and the situation is declining rapidly. From wildfires across the USA and Europe to floods and droughts causing mass migrations across the world, climate change needs to become a daily conversation in our lives. How do we discuss it? How do we deal with the anxiety and the trauma that undoubtedly come with these conversations?  


What it's for: 

  • It is a way for us to get to know writers and to build new relationships, rather than a service guaranteed to provide detailed feedback on every submitted script. 

  • We are looking to produce work on the climate crisis and your script could be our next production.  

Is my script eligible?

At Crunch Leaf, we find the story and let it choose the best medium.

  • We will accept the following mediums, please specify your medium on your header page:

    • Full-length play with a running time of a maximum 1 hour, we suggest this would be approximately 50 pages or 25-30 pages for a monologue.
