Potential applicants will find a familiarity with the works of Leslie Scalapino a useful reference - we are not looking for imitators or conventional playwriting, but writing that is challenging, poetic and innovative.

Initial applications should consist of a cover letter*, a 10-page excerpt, and a 150 word (maximum) summary of the full piece. We will request full scripts from a shortlist of selected candidates.

The Award for Innovative Women Playwrights intends to support new writing by female-identified people, inclusive of transwomen.

The prize is open to international submissions in English.

Only one performance text / script may be submitted. The work should not have been previously produced, as the intention is to support new works.

*The play must be accompanied by a letter containing the writer's name, address, email address, and a short biography (one paragraph).
