Read & Rant: A Plays-In-Progress Series FAQ
What are Athena Project’s Vision/Mission/Values?
What types of plays will you accept?
Is my play eligible if it has been produced before?
What is the time frame for each monthly Read & Rant?
Each monthly Read & Rant operates on a three month “cycle”. During the first month, Athena Project will release a call for submissions (ex. October Read & Rant will accept submissions during the month of August). We will review the submitted scripts during the second month and select two to participate in the moderated Read & Rant session (ex. selection for October will occur in September). The third month will be the month during which Read & Rant will occur and selected playwrights will receive their feedback session. All Read & Rant events take place virtually via Zoom on the 3rd Monday of each month, 6:30-8:30pm MST.
How does the selection process work?
Do I need to reside in the Denver area?
Does Athena Project accept only unproduced plays?
Who should I reach out to if I still have questions?
- At Athena Project, we believe that “women” means many things and can be a complicated term. We recognize that the term “women” does not automatically include all aspects of the gender spectrum. We want to create a safer space for the expression and growth for all women, trans and gender nonconforming individuals.
- Playwrights with all levels of experience are encouraged to submit.
We strive to hire women dramaturgs wherever possible.
There are no fees to submit, but donations to Athena Project are always welcome. (Donation information is stored separately from the lottery and holds no bearing in the adjudication process.)
