$17.00 USD

Hidden River Arts offers $1,000 and publication in The <em>Hidden River Review of Arts & Letters</em> for an unpublished and unproduced short play of no more than 15 minutes.  


Eligible: Any previously unpublished and unproduced short play of no more than 15 minutes. 


The full script should be submitted, along with a brief bio, synopsis and character breakdown. Please be sure to include the breakdown and synopsis before the script. Any scripts submitted without the synopsis and breakdown will be disqualified. 


Please note: As long as the play is unpublished, and has not received a full production (readings, workshops, showcases are all FINE) at the time of submission, you are not required to withdrawal the manuscript if you receive a production offer during our deliberation process.  We do request, however, that you withdraw your manuscript should you receive an offer of publication, since publication is part of this prize.  


We also accept multiple submissions and simultaneous submissions (Each manuscript must be entered separately.)

This competition is open to all writers in English, internationally. 


Reading fee:  $17

Deadline Extended To:  December 1, 2019

The winning script is chosen by our Hidden River staff, and all decisions are final.
