Submissions for the Fall 2020 Series are open from May 12 - June 19.
It's time to submit for Fall 2020!
(but wait - did you read the submission guidelines?)
While what theatre in NYC will look like in the fall remains to be seen, we will continue our programming of monthly workshop readings that foster new work in development for writers writing for women.
If your script is selected for the Fall Series, your work will be presented according to current city and state guidelines and the needs and requests of our performance space. That means the possibilities for each reading include: Back to Usual (live, in person), Limited Live (live, with limited audience capacity and other precautionary measures), or Online. Whichever form each workshop takes, we are committed to providing a meaningful experience for both playwrights and community members.
- Submission fees are $6 per submission
- Please be sure you have carefully read our submission guidelines
- You are welcome to submit multiple scripts
- You may submit scripts that have been previously submitted if they have since been revised
- We are happy to accept submissions that are being shopped elsewhere, but we ask that you contact us if your script is selected for another workshop, a staged reading, or production.

Why are we asking for a submission fee?
Our readings and events have always been free. This is something that has always been important to us. While our overhead is low, we have monthly expenses for each workshop reading and remain committed to paying the actors and directors who participate in our yearly rehearsed and staged events. A small submission fee will enable us to continue to do this work. In addition, it will enable us to give back to the Tank, the amazing performance space who sponsors our work.
We are proud that our playwrights are such a diverse group, and that first-time playwrights and students have been featured alongside career playwrights. We hope this new process is able to keep our work afloat without being prohibitive.
Please note: we accept scripts in .pdf form *only.* If you submit a .doc, .docx, or other format, your script will not be read and your fee will be forfeit.
