PLAYWRIGHTS REALM FELLOWSHIP & INTERSTATE 73
Deadline: March 4th
website: http://www.playwrightsrealm.org/

In our ongoing efforts to let playwrights spend more time writing, and less time filling out forms, we’re implementing some changes for the 2018-19 season. This year The Realm will have one simultaneous application period for these two programs, and writers can apply to both with a single process. We’re also shifting to an online submission system, to help keep things streamlined and simple! Applications for the 2018-19 open submission programs close at 11:59pm on Sunday, March 4th.

The Playwrights Realm’s coveted Writing Fellowship is awarded annually to four promising writers living in or near New York City. The Fellowship comes with a year of monthly meetings to work on a script-in-progress, collaborative rehearsal processes with a director and designers as part of a 15-hour internal reading and a 29-hour public reading, career development opportunities and discussions with industry professionals, open use of our office and amenities, and a $3,000 stipend.

Begun this past season, Scratchpad Series is a chance for The Realm to engage with an entirely new group of playwrights each year, erasing limitations of geography or access by identifying and inviting playwrights from across the U.S. Participants receive a developmental workshop of up to one week in New York City, working with top-notch professional collaborators—director, cast, and The Realm’s artistic staff. If the playwright is based outside of New York, The Realm will also provide travel and housing or per diem for the duration of the workshop.           

As we strive to find and foster the most exciting emerging voices out there, we hope you’ll consider applying for our programs again this year. Full information is available on our website: http://www.playwrightsrealm.org/general-info/.

THE LESLIE SCALAPINO AWARD FOR INNOVATIVE WOMEN PERFORMANCE WRITERS
Deadline: March 21
Website: http://lesliescalapinoaward.org/
   
In memory of Leslie Scalapino, her extraordinary body of work, and her commitment to the community of experimental writing and performance.  Read about Leslie here.

The Leslie Scalapino Award recognizes the importance of exploratory approaches and an innovative spirit in writing for performance.  See our dedicated website www.lesliescalapinoaward.org about the winners of our previous cycles:  Joyelle McSweeney's Dead Youth, or The Leaks, and Khadijah Queen's Non-Sequitur, and Brigid McLeer's The Triumph of Crowds, as well as our wonderful finalists. 

The Prize: The winner will receive a $2,500 cash prize, print publication of the winning text by Litmus Press, and a staged reading of the piece in New York this fall, by Fiona Templeton's company The Relationship.  The award is biennial.

The Call:

Please read the guidelines carefully as the terms of the award have changed.

We are looking for a full-length work for live performance by a woman writer with an inquiring approach to language and content. The poetic practice of Leslie Scalapino was interdisciplinary, including photography, plays, performance, and collaboration with dance and music. We would like to honor this aspect of her work in the award.

The Award for Innovative Women Playwrights intends to support new writing by female-identified people, inclusive of transwomen.  The prize is open to international submissions in English.

While the principal focus for the award is on innovative writing for performance, competitive submissions may consider a range of approaches to innovation in performance, including but not limited to integrated experimentations with language, gesture, movement, sound, visual art / vision, site / location and/or activist practice. The writer should demonstrate some experience in the discipline, materials or medium involved. 

Applicants should have had no more than 3 productions of their work, as the award is intended to open up opportunities, although it is not limited to emerging writers. Artists from other disciplines newly working in performance are welcomed. The submitted work should not have been previously published or produced, with no publication or production scheduled before December 2019. We do not define productions according to an Equity theatrical hierarchy, but as a professional realization of the work beyond a reading or work-in progress presentation.

 The award will be biennial, but until further notice there will be no confirmed production attached to the award, although we will work towards this possibility. We will retain production rights until December 2019, at which point they will revert to the author.

Through this program, Page 73 provides artistic and financial resources to this writer as he or she develops one or more new plays of his or her choosing. The P73 Playwriting Fellow receives an unrestricted award of $10,000 and a development budget, managed by Page 73 and the Fellow over the course of the Fellowship year, up to an additional $10,000.

The Fellow is encouraged to think creatively about using Fellowship resources to meet concrete goals that might not otherwise be possible. These goals may include, but are not limited to, development of one or more new plays, assistance in building relationships within the New York City theater community, research, and/or travel. Please note that funds from the P73 Playwriting Fellowship do not cover full-scale productions, nor does Page 73 commit to producing the work of the Fellow. The Fellowship incorporates at least one public presentation by the Fellow. Page 73 also helps the Fellow identify and connect with collaborators, including directors, designers, actors and dramaturgs, for Fellowship projects.

The Fellow is associated with Page 73 for the calendar year, from January 1 to December 31. After being selected, he or she works with Page 73’s staff to develop a plan for the year and establish a timeline for the development work to be done on the new play or plays. The Fellow may also be invited to participate in the Page 73 Summer Residency and, if eligible, Interstate 73 (described below) during the Fellowship year.

If the Fellow is not a New York City resident, he or she must be prepared to travel to New York during the Fellowship year in order to fully engage in the opportunities that the Fellowship provides.

Interstate 73 is Page 73’s yearlong writers group. Consisting of six to eight playwrights and led by Page 73’s Producing Artistic Director, Interstate 73 meets twice monthly on weeknight evenings at our office in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Each playwright receives a stipend for participating. Participants bring in pages that are read aloud and discussed by the group. Each participating playwright is also given an opportunity for a reading of a completed work, which can be a public or private reading, depending on the playwright’s interests and needs. Page 73's staff works with each playwright to craft the reading to be as useful as possible for the writer.
Interstate 73 begins each year in January, and meetings run through December; sessions are typically suspended for a period in the summer. Please consult the eligibility requirements below. Page 73 selects participants from individuals we meet through this application process as well as from individuals who have become known to the company through other means.

Note: While Page 73's staff may, from time to time, offer a spot in Interstate 73 to a playwright who meets the eligibility requirements but has not completed an application for the program, anyone who wishes to be considered for the 2018 Fellowship must submit this application.
