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.

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.

On separate a cover sheet, please list the title of the piece, your name, page count, and contact info.
