The Salem State theatre department and Center for Creative and Performing Arts are accepting submissions for the 2022 Veterans 10-Minute Playwriting Contest. The submission deadline is April 30 with an anticipated staged reading of the selected plays at our 4th Annual Veterans 10-Minute Play Festival in November, 2022.
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.
