Women's Work 2017 Call for Submissions

11th Annual Festival

DEADLINE EXTENDED: All entries must be postmarked by March 30, 2017

In May, 2017, Tennessee Women’s Theater Project will present the Eleventh Annual edition of Women’s Work, our showcase and celebration of works created by women. Each year we present the work of women playwrights, poets, singers, musicians, essayists, circus performers, painters, filmmakers, dancers, choreographers, photographers – and more – from across Tennessee and across the country. This is our call for submissions for Women’s Work 2017.

The deadline for submissions is March 15, 2017 March 30, 2017 – your submission package must be postmarked by that date. Use this link to download a submission form. There’s a modest, non-refundable submission fee of $25.00, which helps offset our expenses for advertising, venue and security, programs and promotion. Email us at womens-work@twtp.org or call 615-681-7220 for more information, or if you have any questions.

Presenters are responsible for securing a director and cast for readings; we can provide you with leads.

Women's Work runs three weekends, from May 5 – 21, 2017, with a different program on each performance date. Mother's Day (May 14) is traditionally Poetry Sunday.

Performances will be held:
May 5, 6, 11, 12, 13, 18, 19 & 20 at 7:30 pm
May 7, 14 (Poetry Sunday) & 21 at 2:30 pm

NOTE: If you have ANY conflicts with our performance or tech rehearsal dates, it's vital that you indicate them on your submission form. We can't promise to accommodate every conflict for every presenter, but we can’t begin to work around them unless we know when they are!

Presenters will be assigned a date and time for a tech rehearsal, to occur before their performance date.

Please feel free to email us at womens-work@twtp.org if you have any questions.
