Women's Work 2015

Submission Deadline Extended

In May, 2015, Tennessee Women’s Theater Project will present the Ninth Annual edition of Women’s Work, our festival and celebration of works created by women. Each year we present the work of women playwrights, poets, singers and musicians, essayists, circus performers, painters, filmmakers, dancers and choreographers, and photographers from across Tennessee and across the country. This is our call for submissions for Women’s Work 2015. We're interested in your staged readings, reader’s theater presentations, performance pieces by women, films and documentaries by women, poetry readings, singer/songwriters, choreography/dance, stand-up comics, circus performers, visual art – you name it, we’ll consider it. 

The deadline for submissions is March 23, 2015 March 31, 2015 – your submission package must be postmarked by that date. Please right-click 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. E-mail us at womens-work@twtp.org or call 615-681-7220 for more information, or if you have any questions.

Submissions must be postmarked no later than March 23, 2015 March 31, 2015

Playwrights are responsible for securing a director and cast; we can provide you with leads

Women's Work runs three weekends with a different program on each performance date, from May 8 to 24, 2015. Mother's Day (May 10) is traditionally Poetry Sunday.

Performances will be held:

May 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 21, 22 & 23 at 7:30 pm
May 10 (Poetry Sunday), 17 & 24 at 2:30 pm

NOTE: If you have ANY conflicts with our performance 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.

Women's Work 2015 is supported by the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee
