Radio Theater Project Submissions

web site

We are currently accepting submissions for 2013-2014 season.

Submissions are open until March 1, 2013.


  • Plays should have a running time of 50 minutes or less. Brevity is the soul of.
  • Plays longer than 30 minutes will need to be able to be split in two parts with an intermission.
  • Plays that originated as stage, film or prose are fine, but we produce radio theater – works originating in other forms will need to be adapted into a radio play
  • The Studio@620 WMNF Radio Theatre Project reserves the right to make any edits necessary for length, clarity, or FCC regulations.
  • Preference will be given to Florida writers and plays with Florida settings and subject matter.
  • Send plays for consideration to Jim Wicker, Literary Manager, at jimwicker.actor@gmail.com.


  • Please include a cover sheet with title, name of author, and contact information.
  • On the second page, please include a plot summary and brief bio of the author.
  • Please submit scripts in 12-point type with page numbers in the upper right-hand corner.
  • The scripts will be broadcast over the radio, so FCC broadcast restrictions apply—no seven deadly words, obscenity, overt sex, or graphic bodily functions.
  • Before your script is produced, you will need to put it into radio play format – see guidelines here.


  • Any action must be made clear by dialogue and sound effects; there are no visual cues.
  • Characters should be identified frequently by name, and there shouldn’t be too many characters in the same scene. If characters aren’t part of the conversation, they disappear. Remember: the audience can’t see the actors. Don’t confuse them.
  • Be judicious in your use of narration and monologue. Dialogue is generally more engaging for the listener.

If you have questions, please contact Jim Wicker, RTP Literary Manager, at jimwicker.actor@gmail.com.
