The other side

Thank you to everyone who submitted a script for consideration in the 2016 NJ Young Playwrights Festival. I am nearly finished organizing the files to send to our first round readers. We will start the reading process in a matter of days!

Please remember that we do not confirm the receipt of a script: there are just too many to sort through and organize for us to do this efficiently. Additionally, you will be contacted if your play is chosen for the final round or beyond. It will take us some time before those results are available, so take some time to relax. We also encourage you to submit the script to another playwriting program for youth.
