Artemisia’s annual Fall Festival began in 2011 and remains the core event of our season. From open submissions from international playwrights, six plays are selected to be staged as readings. From those six plays, the fall festival audience will choose by vote which play will be fully produced during Artemisia’s next theatre season. We consider all submissions based on the following guidelines – please read the information below carefully before submitting.
Plays must be full length and be carried by a woman. We require a leading, female protagonist. Artemisia produces plays that empower women. Due to the number of submissions we receive, submission is limited to ONE play per writer. If you submit more than one play, your submissions will NOT be considered. Full-length is defined by a playing time of 90 minutes or more. The submission window for Artemisia’s 2015 Fall Festival opens August 15, 2014, and and closes January 15, 2015, at midnight. Artemisia limits submissions to the first five hundred plays received and reserves the right to close the submission window PRIOR TO JANUARY 15TH if FIVE HUNDRED submissions have been received. Published plays and one-acts DO NOT meet Artemisia’s guidelines and will NOT be accepted. We are unable to accept snail mail submissions. Please submit your play as a single file PDF attachment (no other format will be accepted) to email@example.com. We have recently changed our submission guidelines. The email given above is the only email where submissions will be accepted. The volume of scripts submitted hampers our ability to comment individually on each work, so we do not offer criticism or feedback on the plays we receive.
Please note: A one-time $10.00 administrative fee per submission is now required. If you meet ALL of the above guidelines - submit your play as follows:
- Pay the $10 fee by using the above link on this page.
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org with 2015 Fall Festival Submission in the subject line, your Paypal receipt number in the body of the email and your play attached as a single-file PDF.
