2011 Young Playwrights, Inc. National Playwriting Competition

Hey New Jersey Young Playwrights! Please take note of another great playwriting competition for which you are eligible:

Young Playwrights, Inc. (YPI) in New York is now accepting scripts for their annual national playwriting contest. The YPI contest was the first of its kind in the United States and the inspiration for the festival in New Jersey and many more across the country. YPI runs a fantastic program and I want to encourage you to submit your script(s) to them in addition to sending them here to us.

Visit their website at http://www.youngplaywrights.org/ for submission guidelines and additional info. Deadline for entries is January 3, 2011.

And as a reminder, the submission deadlines to the New Jersey Young Playwrights Festival (NJYPF) are also in January 2011: all high school submissions (grades 10-12 in the High School, Rewrites, and Podstages divisions) are due by January 14; Elementary (grades 4-6) and Junior HS (grades 7-9) plays are due by January 21. All NJYPF submissions must be done online at http://www.njypf.org/.

I'll be in touch again soon with some writing ideas. In the meantime, happy writing!
