Pride Films and Plays presents Women's Work, a contest for writers who just happen to be women.
We endeavor to enhance the visibility of women who write and offer them opportunities to be heard loud and clear.
Or, in this case, loud and queer.
The Women's Work contest fosters excellence in work
written by women intended for live performance. All scripts submitted must be
written by a woman (or women) and feature lesbian characters, history, or
themes pertinent to the lesbian community and relevant to the world. We are
accepting both full-length scripts and short plays.
Scripts will be judged by a panel of theatre professionals. Past judges include Barb Lhota, Ebony Joy, Lindsay Bartlett, Marga Gomez, Rebecca Kling, Tara Mallen, and Vanda.
Contest finalists will receive a cash prize and a staged reading of their work in Chicago.
Entry fee is waived if entry is received between January 15 and January 31.
Entry fee is $25 if entry is received between February 1 and February 28.
Entry fee is $30 if entry is received between March 1 and April 1.
To make the final deadline, scripts must be received by 11:59 pm Central Time on April 1, 2013.
