2010-2011 Huntington Playwriting Fellows: Apply TODAY!
Contributed by Lisa Timmel
We are pleased to announce that we are accepting applications for the 2010-2011 Huntington Playwriting Fellows. The deadline is June 23, 2010.
“But wait!” you exclaim. “Didn’t you just do this last fall? It hasn’t even been a year!”
Well, dear Playwright, you're right! When the HPF program was started, the playwrights’ tenures were intended to coincide with the theatre season. Over the years, we got a bit off track and it shifted to calendar year. Charles Haugland and I realized that we needed to return to the season-to-season cycle putting the bulk of the reading into the summer months when things slow down here a bit. So the time to apply is NOW.
You can find all the information you need here.
There are a few important changes to note:
- You may submit either a full-length play or a one-act
- If you have submitted a play to us since May 1, 2009 there is no need to send an additional play.
- Please send us everything via email, and most importantly,
- You may not resubmit work that was previously considered by the Huntington, this includes 2009 HPF application scripts.
We are more interested in learning about your voice or sensibility than reading polished scripts, so we encourage you to send whatever you are currently working on, even if you do not consider it completely “finished.”
We had a great time reading the applications last year and we’re really looking forward to what you all have got for us now.
