Submissions for The Oven, Personal Pizza Party (personalpizzaparty.org)'s flagship program – now in its second year – are now open!

The Oven invites up-to-five early-career playwrights to generate a new short play over an 8-week collaborative workshop process, culminating in a public staged reading series in June. Facilitated by 3P Executive Artistic Director and Oven Founder, Lee Melillo, this cohort aims to be a highly collaborative, non-hierarchical, and supportive creative space for writers to work and play together.

The Summer 2023 Oven program will run between April 22nd and June 10th. Meetings will be held in Manhattan (see application form for specific dates/times). The Oven is an in-person program, and writers must commit to attending 7 out of 9 sessions to take part.

Previously written and developed work will not be considered for the Oven; all projects must be new and generated over the course of our meeting period.

All scripts that are cooked up in the Oven will be presented by Personal Pizza Party and The Elif Collective (theelif.org) as part of our staged reading series in mid/late June.

Selected writers will receive a stipend of $200 for their participation in the program.

For the program, we are looking for artists who are looking for an artistic community to call their own. Both 3P and Elif seek to cultivate collaborative spaces and landing pads for early-career artists in New York City. Successful applicants will articulate in their application why the Oven program appeals to them, how it will benefit their artistic practice right now, and their feelings on participating in a highly-collaborative process such as this.

Submissions close Monday, April 1st, at 11:59pm EST. Selected writers will be contacted by Thursday, April 11th.

Please email lee@personalpizzaparty.org with any questions about the program.
