Seeking play script readers, writers, & writers-to-be :
Wildfire Community Arts Center
“Ink to Boards” One-Act Play Script Writing Competition & Festival
“Ink to Boards” intertwines each element of theater from script through production, and beyond! The basic concept includes submission of original one-act play scripts, inviting a community of readers to review, feedback, and select five (5) scripts to be produced. (Readers aren’t required to submit a play ~ but are encouraged to give it a shot!)
This project creates an opportunity for individuals who might not venture into more formal competitions, but have a good story idea. So, writers and writers-to be: sharpen-up your pencils and write that 20-minute once-act with a maximum of four characters. No previous experience is required ~ You may become a produced playwright!
In addition, readers who might have never participated in the script selection process get to discuss and feedback to the writers so a revision may take place during the process. This is an experience for all involved in shepherding a production through the creative process.
