Yale Young Native Playwrights Contest: submission deadline March 1
Native Youth 25 and under are encouraged to submit to the Annual Yale Young Native Playwrights Contest. The winner will receive a developmental workshop of their play at Yale and $500 prize. For the first time since 2020, the Yale Indigenous Performing Arts Program (YIPAP) Festival will be in-person on Yale’s campus this year. Transportation and housing at Yale will be provided to the winner for the duration of the Annual YIPAP Festival (in early May 2023).
The playwright must be between the ages of 15 and 25 and identify as Indigenous.
Plays must be original scripts of no more than 120 pages and no less than 50 pages (this can vary due to structure, so feel free to email to double check eligibility) and written in standard play-script format.

Wed. February 15th from 4:00-6:00pm, The Yale Indigenous Performing Arts Program (YIPAP) will be offering a free workshop online with Playwright Lee Cataluna (Native Hawaiian). Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot in the class.
*Note: Putting on a play is a collective effort and, as such, the winning playwright will be partnered with a professional Native playwright and/or director to workshop their piece before its staged reading.
