Playwriting Contest, 3/1/12 deadline

Road Less Traveled Productions is sponsoring their Third Annual Buffalo Young Writers Contest for Playwrights between the ages of 17 and 22 years and presently enrolled in high school or college in Western New York. The deadline has been extended to 3/1/12.

Please see the email below for a chance to “unleash your inner playwright.” Note that you must be between the ages of 17 and 22... I’m not sure what they consider the cutoff, when turning 23 makes you “over the hill” for purposes of this contest!

If you would like to view the information on the website, you can visit http://roadlesstraveledproductions.org/programs/buffalo-young-writers/ for specific information about the contest. 

Road Less Traveled Productions (RLTP) is a professional not-for-profit theatre company dedicated to the development and production of new theatrical works by Western New York playwrights, as well as presentations of esteemed modern dramas of outstanding literary merit. RLTP launched its first annual Buffalo Young Writers contest in the fall of 2009. Response to the original contest (and the resulting showcase) was so positive that RLTP revived the contest in the Fall of 2011, with a second BYW Night in May 2011. 

2011’s Grand Prize Winner, UB Student Jon Zelasko, is currently developing his first full-length play in the Emanuel Fried New Play Workshop (RLTP’s in-house mechanism for the development of new play by WNY playwrights). Zelasko’s play Sam will receive its first public development reading this Fall at the Road Less Traveled Theater.
