                        Experimental Theater Writing Workshop – Fall 2022

                        Seeking female or female-identifying experimental writers for the Fall Experimental Theater Writing Workshop. This is a series of ten Zoom classes/workshops held every Tuesday evening from 09/06 - 11/09. Classes will consist of discussions of homework material; prompt assignments; and readings of work generated in class. The last class will consist of final presentations.

                        Literary movements and theories allow us to see the social response of theatre to the world.  While these movements and theories enlighten us to historical artistic responses, they can also seem like arcane academic subjects to the writer.  Questions we may ask are: can some of these concepts unearth new dramatic possibilities for the writer?  Can theories or techniques of the past be relevant in today’s socio-political landscape?  If we are seeking new ways to express ourselves as dramatists and theatre makers, we might continue our search for other techniques that allow us to expand our toolkit and create unique experiences for our audiences.


                        The goals of this course are: 1) to gain additional theater writing techniques which expand the writer’s current theatrical repertoire; 2) to investigate writing techniques as a representation of a writer’s response to the world; and 3) to strengthen a connection between theatre and various other theories and movements. 

                         

                         

                        Guidelines: 

                        • Only 1 submission per playwright
                        • 1 experimental writing sample. Each sample is up to 10 pages only. 
                        • Title page on sample should contain:
                          • title
                          • name
                          • contact info
                        • Second page should contain:
                          • Character breakdown
                          • setting
                          • time
                        • file name of sample play should read: titleOfPlay_lastname_exp.pdf

                        Writers will be selected based on the nature of the work submitted and availability. By experimental, we mean work that challenges the conventional elements of theater. If selected, the fee is $350.

                        Experimental Theater Writing Workshop - Winter 2022

                        Seeking female or female-identifying experimental writers for the Winter 2022 Experimental Theater Writing Workshop. This is a series of ten Zoom classes/workshops held every Tuesday evening from 02/01 - 04/05. Classes will consist of discussions of homework material; prompt assignment; readings of work generated in class. The last class will consist of final presentations.

                        Meta-modernism posits itself as a ‘post-ideological’ condition that stresses engagement, affect, and storytelling through "ironic sincerity”—something unachievable for post-modern pastiche. And yet, does fragmentation automatically exclude engagement, sincerity or irony? In seeking a representative experience of our world--writing that reflects who we are--we might continue to delve into our inner selves, allowing ourselves to represent the world as we experience it—both logically and illogically with engagement, sincerity and irony.

                        The goals of this course are multifaceted: 1) to gain theatrical writing techniques which expand the writer’s current theatrical repertoire; 2) to understand writing techniques as a representation of the writer’s inner response; and 3) to create a short experimental theatrical work derived from dreams.

                        Guidelines:
                        • Only 1 submission per playwright
                        • 1 experimental writing sample. Each sample is up to 10 pages only. 
                        • Title page on sample should contain:
                          • title
                          • name
                          • contact info
                        • Second page should contain:
                          • Character breakdown
                          • setting
                          • time
                        file name of sample play should read: titleOfPlay_lastname_exp.pdf

                        Writers will be selected based on the nature of the work submitted and availability. By experimental, we mean work that challenges the conventional elements of theater. If selected, the fee is $350.

                        Experimental Theater Writing Workshop - Winter 2021

                        Seeking female or female-identifying experimental writers for the Winter 2021 Experimental Theater Writing Workshop. This is a series of ten Zoom classes/workshops held every Tuesday evening from 01/12 - 03/23. Classes will consist of discussions of homework material; prompt assignment; readings of work generated in class. The last class will consist of final presentations.

                        Traditional views of playwriting strategies are rooted in higher-level cognitive functions, i.e., reasoning and empathy. While those strategies can lead the playwright to powerful modes of representation on the stage, is this the sum total of the spectator experience? Are there other methods that can enhance the experience of the theatre spectator? If we are seeking a comprehensive ability to engage spectators, we might continue our search for other techniques that allow us to create comprehensive experiences for those spectators.

                        The goals of this course are: 1) to gain additional theater writing techniques which expand the writer’s current theatrical repertoire; 2) to investigate writing techniques as a representation of a writer’s response to the world; and 3) to strengthen a connection between theatre and various other arts forms.

                        Guidelines:
                        • Only 1 submission per playwright
                        • 2 samples—one realistic, one experimental. Each sample is up to 10 pages only. 
                        • Title page on each sample (realistic and experimental) should contain:
                          • title
                          • this text: “Realistic Sample” OR “Experimental Sample”
                          • name
                          • contact info
                        • Second page should contain:
                          • Character breakdown
                          • setting
                          • time
                        • • file name of realistic play should read: titleOfPlay_lastname_real.pdf
                        • • file name of experimental play should read: titleOfPlay_lastname_exp.pdf
                        Writers will be selected based on the nature of the work submitted and availability. By realistic, we mean work that abides by traditional modes of realism—i.e., human characters in a psychological drama. By experimental, we mean work that challenges the conventional elements of theater. If selected, the fee is $300. This will cover the cost of actors for the readings.

                        Experimental Theater Writing Workshop - Fall 2020


                        Seeking female or female-identifying experimental writers for the Fall 2020 Experimental Theater Writing Workshop. This is a series of ten Zoom classes/workshops held every Tuesday evening from 09/08 - 10/10. Classes will consist of a prompt followed by readings of experimental work generated in class. The last class will consist of final presentations.


                        While many theatrical presentations today are rooted in realism, there are still others that resist representing the world in realistic way. Surrealism, absurdism, and expressionism have all generated powerful experiences and points of connection outside of logic and reason. And yet, have the methods that generate these emotional experiences been thoroughly investigated in theatrical writing? If we are seeking a representative experience of our world--writing that reflects who we are--we might continue our search for other techniques that allow us to represent the world as we experience it.

                        The goals of this course are: 1) to gain additional theater writing techniques which expand the writer’s current theatrical repertoire; 2) to investigate writing techniques as a representation of a writer’s response to the world; and 3) to strengthen a connection between theatre and various other arts forms.

                        Guidelines:
                        • Submit up to 10 pages of theatrical experimental writing. No more than 1 submission per playwright.
                        • Title page should contain:
                        • title
                        • name
                        • contact info
                        • Second page should contain: 
                        • Character breakdown
                        • setting
                        • time

                        Whiskey Radio Hour seeks radio plays

                        web site

                        Deadline: February 16, 2020

                        We are currently taking writer and director submissions for Episode 22 of the Whiskey Radio Hour, which will be on Tuesday, March 31 at Chief O'Neill’s Pub and Restaurant, Chicago.

                        All submissions are due by Sunday, February 16 to whiskeyradiohour@gmail.com.

                        Submission Guidelines for Writers

                        NOTE: At present, we are only accepting new radio play submissions from persons of color, female-identifying and/or nonbinary playwrights.

                        Kindly email whiskeyradiohour@gmail.com with your complete script (in either .doc or .pdf format).

                        • Only complete scripts will be considered.
                        • Your play should be around ten minutes long (so read your play out loud before you submit!)
                        • Your play can be in any genre you like, but try to engage the radio play format in some way.
                        • Due to space constraints, up to four actors can perform in each radio play. Therefore, actors will play multiple roles if there are more than four characters in your piece.
                        • Each writer can submit up to two radio plays per Radio Hour.
                        • Each episode of the Whiskey Radio Hour is recorded, and then put on the internet for anyone to download free of charge. To check out past episodes, visit our bandcamp page.

                        If you’re interested in the correct format of a radio play, the BBC has a handy guide here
