Table Work Press seeks full-length plays

web site

Deadline: February 1, 2021

Table Work Press publishes and advocates for promising plays. Now in our second season, we look forward to continuing our mission of championing playwrights whose work is important, pressing, and worth writing home about. Our 2020-21 open submission period for full-length plays will be held from December, 2020 until February, 2021. Selected plays will be published, and playwrights will receive a $500 stipend, a cut of profits, and their play will be shared with TWP’s network of partner organizations. Playwrights who are not selected to be published this season may be invited to partner for other opportunities.

For consideration, please submit the following materials through this form in PDF format by February 1, 2021:

Full-length, unpublished script

A 10-page sample from your play (Note: this sample can be from anywhere within the play, but please be sure to provide any context necessary for reading your sample within the document.)

A one-to-two page artist statement. Artist statements give us an opportunity to learn more about you, your process, and your work, and may address the following questions:

Who are you, and how have you gotten to where you are?

Why are you choosing to submit this play, and where is it in its development?

What are your goals for your play and how can TWP help you achieve those goals?

What are your core values as a playwright?

Additionally, you’ll be asked to provide us with a short one-to-two sentence synopsis of your play. All 10-page samples will be read by a minimum of two readers, and all applicants will be notified of their status in the Spring of 2021.

We are unable to consider musicals at this time and ask that each writer submit only one play for consideration. Please note that due to the volume of submissions, we will only consider the first play submitted by each writer in the event of multiple submissions. Please feel free to reach out to us with any updated materials, questions, or concerns at admin@tableworkpress.org.
