NO ENTRY FEE.
Deadline January 11, 2016 at 5pm, EST.
All women who consider themselves emerging playwrights
(as distinct from fledgling or mid-career playwrights)
are eligible to apply for the FEWW Prize.
Playwrights from all over the world are encouraged to apply,
but the play must be written in English.
Eligibility does not require that a submitted work adhere to the traditional three-act structure.
One-acts, two-acts (even four-, five-, six- acts), monologues, adaptations,
and any other wild (or deceptively tame) format will be considered with equal seriousness.
The only absolute requirement is that the submitted text be a completed full-length work for theater.
The 2016 winner will be presented her award as part of the 2016 Lily Awards,
which honors the work of women in American theater.
The winner will also receive a cash award of $2,500
as well as a staged reading of her play hosted by FEWW
at a theater in New York City. In addition, a stipend of up to $700
for travel and accommodation may be provided by FEWW if necessary.
