|It’s a Life – Fall/Winter 2018
Stories that celebrate life while looking at the ironic, mystifying, and often times unbelievably funny events surrounding death. Tears may come, but so will laughter as we look at how we get though that which we all must face.
Deadline for submissions: June 15, 2018
Okay, you’re Jewish, that’s a good start, but how “Jewish” do you have to write? When submitting material, consider the following parameters for your submission:
Please check the themes of the season and submit accordingly. We will not accept late submissions this year. Thank you!
Please make sure your name and title of your work appear on your submission.
An element of Jewish resonance is important, but your submission does not need to feature being Jewish as the prominent theme or subject.
Feature women or a woman’s point of view, but not exclusively. Male characters are welcome.
Short one-acts (10 minutes max) and monologues (7 minutes max) are preferred. Will read full-length, but unlikely will produce.
1500 words or less preferred
Must be topical for the 21st century. While we consider plays set in another time period, we mostly select contemporary pieces.
Small cast a must. One-person shows okay.
Previously produced or published work is welcome. Please include production and/or publication history. A new version of a classic or an adaptation from another medium would definitely be of interest.
Although the primary focus of the JWT is on the writing, music is often a part of our events. We encourage composers, song-writers, and performers to submit individual work. Musicals are welcome.
Submit your material to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to let us know the salon you are submitting for in the subject line of your email.
