O'Neill Young Playwrights Festival


Deadline: February 1, 2022

Application Form

Young Playwrights Festival (YPF) will take place May 13 - May 15, 2022. 

Employing the signature “O’Neill process,” the festival provides professional-level support to develop original one-act plays written by middle and high school students. With these methods, the young playwrights hone their work, furthering it from the initial isolation of writing to the collaborative process involved in making their script into a living, breathing play. Students receive a rigorous exploration of their work guided by professional artists as well as a script-in-hand public reading of their new play.

1. You are between the ages of 12-18 and currently enrolled in middle or high school.

2. Your parent or guardian has given you permission to submit your play.

3. The play you are submitting is between 10 and 15 pages
(This page limit does not include your title and character description page).

4. You are the only writer of this play (joint submissions will not be considered).

5. You have included your name and the title of your play on the front page of the script.

6. You have provided a listing of character names and descriptions.

7. Each page of your script has been numbered.

8. You are only submitting one play for consideration.
