Sunday Miscellany Sunday 8 March 2020
***Summer 2020 update*** We're currently receiving between double and triple the usual numbers of submissions to Miscellany. As ever, we have far more excellent scripts to choose from than we can use. If you're sending something in, make sure to read the guidelines first and bear in mind that, as stated in those guidelines, because of the volume of submissions, after an initial acknowledgement of your submission you’ll only hear from us again if we’re in a position to proceed to a recording.
Miscellany50, a series celebrating 50 years of Sunday Miscellany, is currently going out on RTÉ Radio 1 on Saturday evenings at 7pm. An anthology from the series is also on sale, published by New Island Books.
