Go Try Write Play ~ June 2023


Deadline: June 30, 2023


We’re proud to announce a new monthly playwriting contest in collaboration with Bamboo Ridge Press. Every month, Kumu Kahua’s artistic director Harry Wong III will select a writing prompt on the first day of that month. We’re looking for 5-page monologues or 10-page scenes based on that prompt; the due date for submissions are always the last day of the month. All entries must be written in traditional play format; instructions on this format can be found here (https://www.dramatistsguild.com/script-formats), courtesy of the Dramatists Guild.

There will be one winner each month. Scripts will be submitted to the judges anonymously. Winners will receive $100 and a subscription to Bamboo Ridge Press. Woo!

The prompt for the month of June 2023 is:

A 3 prop prompt. Write a ten page maximum scene that uses a leaf blower, a Ken doll, and a can of Spam. Whatever scene you create, you must use all three props, and each prop must be essential to the action/story of the scene.

Best of luck!
