YOU DON'T KNOW DICK seeks radio plays


Deadline: July 1 2022
OR until we have accepted 12 submissions we like

One of the greatest sci-fi writers of all time, many of Dick's acclaimed short stories are in the public domain. Beginning in January 2023, we will air a radio play version of 9 of his stories, one per month, and we're looking for playwrights to pen them!

You must choose from one of the approved plays (see list below).

It must be written as a radio play in the preferred format (see example of The Hanging Stranger below). Any submissions that do not follow the given format will not be read.

It must be between 30-45 mins. in duration (approx. 20-25 pages MAX depending on amount of dialogue/action).

We will accept submissions until July 1st, 2022, OR until we have accepted 12 submissions we like; therefore, the sooner you submit, the better!

Plays must be submitted in PDF format only.

There is NO financial compensation if your play is selected.
