|YOUNG WRITERS SHORT PLAY FESTIVAL SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
The Young Writers Program began in 2011, with the education program moving through the spring, and the first production in July of 2012. Since our first year, we have worked with high school playwrights from all across central Ohio. From working with playwright mentors to stage readings to production, the students in Young Writers enter the program with a script and conclude the program as produced playwrights. This year will be our 10th year of the program and we look forward to working with our new group of students!
