Call for Scripts, 2019 VSA Playwright Discovery Award Program

VSA-The Kennedy Center: The International Organization on Arts and Disability

Deadline: January 23, 2019

Young writers with disabilities and collaborative groups that include students with disabilities, in the U.S. grades 6-12 (or equivalents) or ages 11-18 for non-U.S. students, are invited to explore the disability experience through the art of writing for performance—in the form of plays, screenplays,  or music theater. Writers are encouraged to craft short (10 minute) works from their own experiences and observations in the style of realism, through the creation of fictional characters and settings, or writing metaphorically or abstractly about the disability experience.
