2024 Veterans 10-Minute Playwriting Contest through June 30, 2024

The Salem State Theatre Department and Center for Creative and Performing Arts are accepting submissions for the 2024 Veterans 10-Minute Playwriting Contest. The submission deadline is June 30, 2024 with an anticipated staged reading of the selected plays at our 6th Annual Veterans 10-Minute Play Festival in November, 2024

Visit Submittable for complete rules and to submit work for consideration. 

All playwrights, regardless of military affiliation, are invited to enter Salem State University’s 10-Minute Playwriting Contest. However, preference will be given to those with a direct military connection. This includes active-duty military, reservists, National Guard, Veterans, and direct family of any of these.

The theme of the play should directly touch on military service and/or how military service affects a community. The contest and festival look to recognize and celebrate those that have served and currently serve. We are looking to bring together a variety of voices exploring both the challenges and the victories and positive influences that Veterans have on our community.

When 12:00am
