The National Young Playwrights in Residence Program 2021

web site

Deadline: March 15, 2021

The National Young Playwrights in Residence Program is designed to nurture the next generation of playwrights through professional mentorship, staged readings, and the sharing of their work through digital platforms.

Starting in April, the participants will engage in monthly digital conferences with their mentor. In this way, the program will transcend any geographical limitations, enabling The Echo to discover and nourish young playwrights in the United States.


Applicants must be at early stages of their career- may not have had previous professional productions.
Writers must submit the following by March 15th.
-Two writing samples (full length-plays, one-acts, ten-minute plays are all acceptable. They must be in .pdf format. No name, or any other writer contact information can be on the writing samples themselves)
-Cover letter describing your background, experience, what you hope to gain from this program, and the type of work you would like to create.
– A resume including creative/educational background

Please e-mail all submissions to andrew@echotheatercompany.com with the subject line National Young Playwright in Residence. We will schedule a phone interview with the final candidates the early part of April.
