Hidden River Review Short Play Award

typewriter, old-style

We congratulate Angela J. Davis of Los Angeles, California, whose play, “Charlotte,” has won our inaugural Hidden River Arts Short Play Award.

A list of the semi-finalists and finalists of the inaugural award cycle can be found here.

The award carries a $1,000 prize and the winning play will be published in The Hidden River Review of Arts & Letters.  The Hidden River Arts Short Play Award accepts previously unpublished and produced short plays of no more than 15 minutes.

Reading fee: $17
Deadline: Extended to December 1, 2019

The full script should be submitted, along with a brief bio, synopsis and character breakdown. 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Please note: As long as the play is unpublished, and has not received a full production (readings, workshops, showcases are all FINE) at the time of submission, you are not required to withdrawal the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. All submissions should be made to Submittable.

We also accept multiple submissions and simultaneous submissions.

Announcements of the winning script will be made on this site, so please BOOKMARK our blog to stay up-to-date on all activities.

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