37th California Young Playwrights Contest Is Accepting Entrants

| April 5, 2021 | 0 Comments

Last year’s California Young Playwrights Contest writers were able to celebrate in person. However, this year’s Plays by Young Writers Festival was well received – even in its digital format – by the public and students alike. One educator summed it up by saying, “My students were introduced to a new opportunity. I have several writers in my class… and a seed was planted for them. A new outlet for writing!”

Do you know a young writer with a story to tell? Encourage them to enter the 37th California Young Playwrights Contest for a chance to see their characters come to life on stage.

The contest is open to California youth 18 and under. Every entrant may request individualized feedback from a theatre professional for future script development. Winning writers will receive a professional production at an esteemed San Diego theatre in 2022.

The deadline to submit is June 1, 2021. For more information, call the Playwrights Project at (858) 384-2970, or visit www.playwrightsproject.org.
