Florida Studio Theatre's 2015 Young Playwrights Festival:


Dear International Friends:
We miss you all very much!

Here are some important dates for Florida Studio Theatre's 2015 Young Playwrights Festival:

·       Deadline for play submissions is February 2, 2015. (But for International Playwrights I am able to push this back to February 13th, if necessary...)

·       ANY PLAYS SUBMITTED PAST FEBRUARY 13th WILL BE HELD IN CONSIDERATION FOR THE 2016 FESTIVAL

Students are encouraged to send as many plays as they wish and I recommend you have them start writing now!

·       International Winning plays will be selected by March 2nd and any Playwright whose play has been chosen will be notified no later than March 6th, 2015. This is 8 weeks earlier than previous years to allow adequate time to arrange visas, travel and accommodations in hopes that they are able to attend the Festival.

The Festival this year is being held on May 9th, 2015.

·       The plays can be emailed as Microsoft Word Document Attachments with the Subject Line: 'Young Playwright Submission

to:

HIGHLY RECOMMEND EMAILING STUDENT PLAYS TO EXPEDITE THE SUBMISSION AND SELECTION PROCESS.

·       Or  'Snail Mailed' to:
