2017-18 PlayGround Writers Pool Deadline

Applications for the 2017-18 PlayGround Writers Pool are being accepted, now through June 30, 2017. Only members of the Writers Pool may submit scripts as part of the monthly staged reading series, Monday Night PlayGround, and from which are selected the six plays and playwrights for each year's Best of PlayGround Festival. For specific eligibility requirements and responsibilities, see below.

To be eligible, writers must reside within the nine counties of the San Francisco Bay Area. To apply for a place in the 2017-18 writers pool, playwrights must submit a maximum ten-page double-spaced script (previously produced and unproduced scripts eligible) via email to scripts<at>playground-sf.org as Portable Document Format (.pdf) attachment. Applications must be received by 11:59pm PST, Friday, June 30, 2017. The script must have the playwright's name, address, email and phone number at the top of the first page of the script and all pages must be numbered. Excerpts from longer works are not accepted but short plays that meet the above requirements and are derived from a longer work are accepted. Writers featured in a Best of PlayGround Festival since 2013 need not submit a script but must send an email confirming interest in being in the pool by the deadline. Women and playwrights of color encouraged to apply.

Announcement & Pool Requirements

Applicants will be notified of selections on or before August 1. Selected writers must attend a mandatory company meeting at 7pm on Sunday, August 28 at the PlayGround PlaySpace, 3286 Adeline St #4, Berkeley, CA 94703. The 2017-18 PlayGround Writers Pool and Resident Playwrights will be publicly announced at the PlayGround Season Kick-Off/Alumni Celebration on Monday evening, September 18, 2017. Writers Pool members must commit to submitting for at least five of the six Monday Night PlayGrounds in any season, Oct-Mar. The submission of a script to Monday Night PlayGround grants PlayGround the exclusive option to stage the play as part of the Monday Night PlayGround and, should it be so selected, to present the world premiere as part of The Best of PlayGround Festival and publish the script in the "Best of PlayGround" anthology.
