Share this event:

Southwest Theatre Productions (SWTP) proudly announces its Second Annual Playwriting Competition. The top three (3) finalists will each receive a $100 royalty and be given a stage reading in Austin, Texas in May 2020 during our play festival at the Santa Cruz Theater. 

This year we're joined by Attic Salt Theatre Company (ASTC) in Asheville, North Carolina. ASTC will have a separate set of readers and judges, and will also give readings to three (3) winners during May 2020. There is a discount for submitting to both the Austin and Ashville festivals.

Submissions will close on January 31st 2020. Staff may contact you with questions or clarifications prior to panel review. You may submit one revision for minor changes (technical, typos) prior to close. All entries will be notified of receipt.

- Plays must be full length, or one-act plays over 60 pages. 

- Comedy or Drama accepted, but keep in mind we're looking for relatable topics such as family, workplace, lifestyle, romance, prejudice, love and loss. Plays with a social conscience, and/or scripts based on a true story are of particular interest, but above all, great dialogue and story arc take priority. So if you have a differing theme but those two things are there, please submit your script. 

- No Musicals, Children's Shows, Farce, Melodrama, Fringe, Horror, or Adaptations.

- Cast must not have more than eight roles, nor less than three. Diverse casting whenever possible.

- Must be written in English.

- Playwright must own all rights pertaining to the submission.

- Only electronic submissions will be accepted.

- Submissions must include full script, character breakdown and a short synopsis or logline.

- Playwrights should include contact information in the body of the email submission.

- You may submit more than one script but the fee is per script. 

- No feedback or written critiques will be offered.

- If selected and SWTP's production is the play's first production, SWTP will receive First Production credit in all future publications of the play as the world premiere.

Enter here, then email your script (and any questions) to: swtproductions@gmx.com. You'll receive an email that your script has been loaded into Submittables. OR submit directly to our page on Submittables here: https://southwesttheatreproductions.submittable.com/submit
