ATHENA PROJECT’s Plays In Progress Series

The Athena Project’s Plays In Progress (PIP) Series exists to develop new theatrical works by women* playwrights.

The Series also includes networking events for participating playwrights. Due to COVID-19, the 2020 and 2021 series have adapted to online formats. We plan to resume live, in-person performances in 2022.

Submissions are accepted March 1-April 15, 2021. Three to five new plays will be selected through an anonymous adjudication process and winners will be announced by October.

Shubert Fendrich Memorial Playwriting Contest 2021

To encourage the development of quality theatrical materials for the educational, community and children’s theatre markets, Pioneer Drama Service is proud to sponsor the annual Shubert Fendrich Memorial Playwriting Contest.

This is an ongoing contest, with a winner selected by June 1 each year from all eligible submissions received the previous year.  All eligible plays accepted for publication will be considered contest finalists, from which the winner will be selected.  The contest winner will receive a $1,000 royalty advance in addition to publication.

o Deadline:ASAP, ongoing, announced each June 1

o Application Fee: None

o Eligibility:​ You can start the submission process by contacting us here.

We will only consider manuscripts with a running time between 20 and 90 minutes.

Submissions must be family friendly in both subject and language. NO cursing. NO explicitly adult content.

We prefer casts that are either balanced or favoring females. The more gender neutral roles, the better.

We favor plays and musicals with ensemble casts, where more than just a few have a chance to shine.

Plays with elaborate set, costume or technical requirements are not appealing because of the limited resources of many of our customers. Pictures, sketches or descriptions of your vision are always helpful.

We recommend your submissions have had at least one production or reading, hopefully staged. We feel this fundamental field test is necessary before a play can be considered for publication since plays are created for the purpose of performance.

Manuscripts must be computer-printed in dark ink. We do not require specific formatting. However, your efforts to ensure your script is free of misspellings and typos will help the submissions editor.

We hope that Pioneer Drama is your first choice as a publisher, and we encourage you to submit to us exclusively. However, we do accept simultaneous submissions with the understanding that you will accept the first contract you’re offered and not use the situation to seek multiple offers from which to choose. If you receive another offer, please notify us immediately so we may rescind your submission.

The following information must accompany your submission or query:

100-200 word synopsis.

Cast list that indicates the number of female roles, the number of male roles and the number of roles that can be performed by either gender. We do not accept one-person shows.

Running time.

CD and/or score for musicals. We appreciate the opportunity to hear the music, if possible.

Set design(s). Please feel free to provide diagrams and/or pictures.

Proof of production or staged reading (i.e., review, program, etc.) A DVD of your performance is ideal, though not required.

Age of intended audience.

A self-addressed envelope of sufficient size with appropriate postage for the return of your materials. We will NOT return manuscripts or accompanying material if this is not included.

Cover letter and/or resume.

New York Theatre Workshop 2050 Administrative Fellowship

o NYTW is proud to announce the 2021/22 Season 2050 Administrative Fellowship program—a sister program to our successful 2050 Artistic Fellowship, which supports emerging playwrights and directors. Replacing our old internship program, the fellowship represents one of several NYTW initiatives to address the economic barriers that may prevent talented individuals from pursuing careers in the theatre. For over 20 years, NYTW has honed an inclusive fellowship program for emerging theatre makers with a multiplicity of perspectives. These fellowships have taken many forms, supporting playwrights, directors, designers and administrators.

The 2050 Fellowship is named in celebration of the U.S. Census Bureau’s projection that by the year 2050, there will be no single racial or ethnic majority in the United States. This projection provokes thoughts at New York Theatre Workshop about the transformations that will take place in the American landscape—technologically, environmentally, demographically, economically and artistically—now and in the future. They are a catalyst for broader questions about the direction of our field. But we’re not waiting for the year 2050 to make the change we wish to see. Instead, we’re working to reflect our evolving and beautifully diversifying society now—to ensure there’s space for those who will lead us into the future to build the skills they need now.

We’re seeking enthusiastic candidates who are underrepresented in theatre administration. We encourage applicants with a unique perspective inclusive of race, color, religion, familial status, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, age and physical ability to apply. We are committed to diversity in all areas of our work, on and off stage. NYTW is an Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE), and all qualified applicants will receive consideration

The Kate Spade New York Foundation

o To honor Kate Spade’s legacy of empowering and inspiring women and girls, the National Council for Behavioral Health is excited to provide complimentary Mental Health First Aid trainings to communities throughout the five boroughs of New York City and New Jersey and in partnership with organizations that specifically support these populations.

In the Mental Health First Aid course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help.

The National Council for Behavioral Health shares Kate Spade New York Foundation’s belief in “the power of women to transform their communities” through empowerment.  In support of this mission, we are offering through a competitive application process, select Mental Health First Aid and Youth Mental Health First Aid trainings, fully funded!

Submit to Parity Productions

Parity Productions is in the midst of some changes.

If you've been on our website lately, you may have noticed one or two of them. There are more on the way, but here's what we can share for now.

One—We have a new mission statement:

Parity Productions promotes parity by empowering women, trans, and gender-expansive artists in theatre.

In fulfilling our mission, we:

  • Commission and develop original plays

  • Produce and promote the work of playwrights, directors, and designers

  • Provide opportunities for underrepresented voices to work in theatre

This new mission statement gets to the heart of what we do simply and clearly, and reflects our gender language shift—from the term trans and gender nonconforming (TGNC) to gender-expansive.

Which leads us to...

Two—Our artists database has a new name:

The Women and TGNC Artists Database is now The Parity Database. Same party, new nametag.

The Parity Database is a free online resource we provide to the NYC theatre industry to create visibility for women, trans, and gender-expansive artists and provide easy access to them for artistic leaders who seek to create more equitable hiring practices for creative teams, with a goal of New York City productions meeting our 50% gender parity hiring standard. And because we intend to lead by example, we hire artists to all our own creative team positions through Database profiles.

We're also actively adding Parity Database profiles during the COVID-19 theatrical shutdown, as a way Parity can support the New York artists who continue to create and make the performing arts accessible through even the most challenging periods, and to best champion these artists when live theatre returns. Artists interested in having a free profile in the database can complete this form at theparitydatabase.org.

If you have any questions or feedback about these changes, please feel free to email us at info@parityproductions.org.

"When putting together a team for a new show, Parity Productions' Women and TGNC Artists Database is usually my first stop. They've made it very easy to find many qualified artists in just about every discipline. It saves so much time to have one source to visit rather than spending hours Googling and asking colleagues for recommendations, and it has introduced me to some wonderful colleagues I might not have known about or found on my own.”

Artist Rescue Trust 

The next evolution of the Artist Rescue Trust program is a partnership with Grant for the Web. They have awarded us a grant allowing us to directly fund more artists and help them educate anyone about Web Monetization as an emerging and potential revenue stream. One that doesn't rely on advertising, pay walls, and bad data privacy practices. It's an innovative way forward to help build a healthier internet.

Web Monetization is a new and open technology that aims to provide a better way to access and financially reward  creators through streaming micropayments - aka tiny fractions of a penny - to instantly flow to artists and creators as people read, watch and listen to their work.

While we want to support artists now with immediate financial assistance, we also want to help support the future financial opportunities for all artists. So this is why we’ve built a learning component into our grant application process. We will also be releasing a series of Web Monetization tutorials that will dive deeper into how you can make it part of your online world.

o Eligibility:Be 18+
