Pride Films and Plays Announces New
Women’s Work Contest and Festival
The contest is open to all women whose writing is pertinent to the lesbian community and relevant to the world
Chicago, IL – Pride Films and Plays endeavors to enhance the visibility of women who write and offer them opportunities to be heard loud and clear. Or, in this case, loud and queer.
The Women’s Work contest consists of two components: Sapphics on Stage and Sapphics on Screen.
Sapphics on Stage is a contest for work with lesbian characters, history, or themes for the theatre, including performance art or other performed pieces.
Sapphics on Screen is a contest for work with lesbian characters, history, or themes for film and television.
The contests are open to all women whose writing is pertinent to the lesbian community and relevant to the world. Writers may submit two works for consideration. Contest finalists will receive a cash prize and a staged reading of their work in Chicago in June 2011. Applications are being accepted from February 1 through March 28, 2011.
For more additional information, please contest Allison Fradkin, Literary Coordinator, at Pridewomen@gmail.com.
