|Only a small fraction of new plays produced every year are written by women. To encourage the development and production of plays by female-identified writers, we put out a special call for our Words by Women Reading Series periodically. These plays are given special attention and considered more immediately by our Literary Committee.
To enter, follow instructions below and write WORDS BY WOMEN on the envelope you send your play in.
Plays must be written by women-identified playwrights. While not mandatory, we encourage casts with a majority of women and plays exploring social issues facing women today.
*Words by Women submissions ARE eligible for The Emerging Playwright Award.
