Calling all playwrights! Seeking submissions for play writing contest

Calling all playwrights! Seeking submissions for play writing contest
Slant of Light Productions is currently accepting submissions for its SNAPSHOTS Program Writing Contest. Rough drafts are accepted and encouraged, as well as submissions from students.

The winning pieces will receive a complete workshop of their piece within Slant of Light Productions, as well as a space in the 2013/2014 Snapshots program with its writer credited as playwright.

About the Program: 

Snapshots teaches students the value of a high self-worth. High self-esteem in teens promotes emotional and physical safety by combating dangerous personal behaviors and belief systems. We educate students about relevant social issues including eating disorders, domestic violence, bullying, sexuality, and drug abuse, providing snapshots of these epidemics in theatrical form.
