east west players' "pacific century" playwriting competition

To all you writers out there... East West Players, the nation's oldest and most established Asian American theater company, is hosting Pacific Century, a national playwriting competition. It's open to anyone with new full-length plays or musicals that deal with Asian Pacific American themes or characters. (If there are international story threads, they should be tied back to Asian American in some way.)

Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three plays, including a $5000 first place award. Who couldn't use five grand in their pocket? All winners will also be considered for possible production.

The submission deadline is June 30, so if you have an appropriate play, go for it. Or hey, maybe you've got the skillz to bang out an awesome full-length play in two weeks. Whatever the case, it's a cool opportunity to get your literary voice out there. To download the competition enrollment form, and the full contest guidelines, go here.
