Eugene O'Neill Theater Center Accepts 2013 National Playwrights Conference Submissions, Now thru 10/24
The Eugene O'Neill Theater Center announced that it will begin accepting scripts for the 2013 National Playwrights Conference today, September 17, 2012. Applicants for the National Playwrights Conference may submit works to the O'Neill's Open Submissions Process through Wednesday, October 24, 2012.
The National Playwrights Conference, led by Artistic Director Wendy C. Goldberg, supports playwrights during the creation and development of new play projects. The authors of the selected works will be awarded a residency for the entire month of July 2013, including an intensive rehearsal process and two staged, script-in-hand public readings. A stipend, housing, meals, and transportation are provided for each writer selected for this month-long residency.
Plays of any length or genre are eligible; however, to be included in the conference, the work must remain unproduced through July 31, 2013. Early submissions are strongly encouraged. No agent is required.
The submission fee is $35 dollars and covers the costs of the process. In an effort to reduce the overall cost of applying, NPC will continue to accept electronic submissions this year. We believe a paperless process is also the responsible choice for the environment.
