To encourage the young writers of North Carolina, Burning Coal each year holds a festival of new plays, written by students from 6th grade to 12th grade from Wake and surrounding counties in North Carolina. We will be accepting submissions of one-act plays from students and producing a number of them in May 2015 at the Murphey School. Please help us spread the word and help our next generation of writers!
All original one-act plays, less than 45 pages in standard manuscript format and written by a student, grades 6 through 12, are eligible. Please send submissions along with a letter including your name, address, email address or phone number, grade and school.
Submissions must be received by March 9, 2015 (EXTENDED ONE WEEK DUE TO WEATHER). Writers will be notified by mid-April.
