Walking Shadow's Script Pitch Program for local playwrights

What are you excited to write next?

Playwrights, do you have a script idea that you think would fit our mission? We’d love to hear it!

Send us one or two short pitches for projects you’d like to develop into a full-length play, along with your writing resume and a previously written play. We will select two pitches that help advance the mission of Walking Shadow Theatre Company and help you see them to fruition, with the ultimate hope of producing them on our stage.

Who is this for?

  • Playwrights based in Minnesota or western Wisconsin
  • Playwrights who are experienced and comfortable working in a critical feedback process
  • Playwrights who are able to develop a play from concept to script within approximately 18 months
  • Artists with a distinctive voice and vision to share

What do I get?

We start with an $800 writing stipend. After that, we work with you to see where our resources meet your needs. Our final goal with this program is a public staged reading, with the possibility of future production.

What's the deadline?

All submission materials are due by midnight on June 1, 2019.

Be sure to read the full submission guidelines here.
