Call for Activist Playwrights

Ten-minute play playwriting group

As part of its expansion of programming, the Institute of Prophetic Activist Art is starting an Activist/Advocacy-oriented 10-minute Playwright's Group.  The group will comprise 8 playwrights who will write a 10-minute play for every class, dealing in some manner with our social/political/cultural life for a total of 8 sessions (8 ten-minute plays in all).  We will be meeting on Tuesday afternoons, 2-5 pm: April 5, 12, 19; May 10, 17, 24, 31 and June 7.  The group will meet in a Manhattan (NY) space TBD.

We will gather to cast from the group and hear each play every week.  Every play will be allotted 10 minutes after hearing it for discussion.

There is no fee to apply, but a $20 fee if accepted to defray the cost of renting space.

Please send a cover letter detailing a little bit about your activist impulse/background, and a 10-minute play or 10-page writing sample to

Submission deadline is March 21.
