DEAR MOTHER NATURE

Periods, however messy, painful and inconvenient, are a sign of health and fertility for billions of menstruators. Following research into the lack of understanding and education of the menstrual cycle – and female reproductive health as a whole – Leading Light Collective completed the first R&D stage of ‘Dear Mother Nature’ in the form of an online digital series, premiered in October 2020

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded Arts Council England funding to progress to the next stage of our R&D of ‘Dear Mother Nature’, taking place at the end of August.

CALLOUT: Pen to Period Seed Commission. The Pen to Period Seed Commission is now closed.
Thank you to all that applied, we have received over 100 applications and with a brilliant team of script readers we are looking forward to finding our Writer.
Applicants will know if successful through to the next round by Friday 30th July 2021
