American Blues Theater Accepting Submissions for 2019 Blue Ink Playwriting Award
The international Blue Ink Playwriting Award was created in 2010 to support new work. Since inception, we’ve named 8 Award winners, 50 finalists, and 68 semi-finalists. Over $5,000 in cash and prizes will be distributed to playwrights in 2019.
Each year American Blues Theater accepts worldwide submissions of original, unpublished full-length plays. The winning play will be selected by Artistic Director Gwendolyn Whiteside and the theater’s Ensemble. The playwright receives a monetary prize of $1,000 and a developmental workshop or staged reading at American Blues Theater in Chicago. Cash prizes are awarded to finalists and semi-finalists too. All proceeds of the administrative fee are distributed for playwrights’ cash prizes.
Submissions will be accepted by American Blues Theater from July 1, 2018 to Aug 31, 2018 @ 11:59pm. Playwrights may only submit one (1) manuscript each year for consideration. Semi-finalists, finalists, and the award winner will be notified January – March 2019.
