The Summer Play Festival for Emerging Writers is held in New York City each July in the Theater Row Complex in midtown Manhattan. Each year, the festival organizers read through hundreds of play and musical submissions and select 15-18 to give full productions under the guidance of their founder, Broadway producer Arielle Tepper. They are currently accepting submissions for the Fourth Annual Festival in July 2007 and are trying to spread the word to theaters and play development centers around the country. Also this year, for the first time, they are accepting submissions of children's theater pieces.
This is a great opportunity for artists to have their work produced in a protected environment at no cost to themselves. (The Festival arranges to fly in and house the out-of-town writers as well.)
More information on our festival and our submission process can be found on our website at www.spfnyc.com .
