Slingshot Reading Series

Facebook page

We are looking for plays, poems, short stories, and other texts surrounding the theme of FROM THE ASHES for an evening of staged readings this upcoming September.

Submission criteria are as follows (please take care to meet all the below guidelines, as texts that fail to do so will not be considered):
1. Texts must address the prompt FROM THE ASHES.
2. All texts must be your own original work.
3. Texts must be 20 pages or less, not counting title sheet.
4. Texts must be NEW in the sense that they never have been performed before, including productions of previous drafts or any public workshops.
5. Texts must be anonymous. To ensure fairness, we require the first round of readings to be completely anonymous. Please ensure that your name has been removed from every page of the document itself, including headers/footers and the title page. On separate a cover sheet, please list the title of the piece, your name, page count, and contact info.
6. Email your text (as a .pdf or .doc/x) and cover sheet to slingshotnewworks@gmail.com.
7. Submissions are due no later than 8/28/2017

Slingshot New Works' mission is the conviction that all art must belong to all people. In support of this, Slingshot will hire at least 50% womxn, people of color, LGBTQ+ folks, people with disabilities, and any member of any underrepresented, or otherwise marginalized community. We, as a collective, will work to amplify all voices.

Selected storytellers will be notified no later than 9/14.
