VSA Playwright Discovery Program
A Jean Kennedy Smith Arts and Disability Program

Call for Scripts: Deadline February 1, 2017

Young writers with disabilities and collaborative groups that include students with disabilities, in U.S. grades 6-12 (or equivalents) or ages 11-18 for non-U.S. students, are invited to explore the disability experience through the art of writing for performance: plays, screenplays, spoken word poetry (for single performer or a group), or music theater. Writers are encouraged to craft short works from their own experiences and observations, create fictional characters and settings, or choose to write metaphorically or abstractly about the disability experience.

VSA has free resources to guide educators and students through the playwriting process.
