About New Voices

Past New Voices Productions


We strive to make submitting to the New Voices program as painless as possible! As a new season for the program is announced, we will outline the required elements for submission. 

Submissions for New Voices: Voices Unheard will be open soon! 


The announcement of the New Voices submission requirements is made approximately 3 months before submissions are open for acceptance in order to give playwrights ample time to prepare.

Once the announcement is made, playwrights have from January - March to submit their required materials. When materials are submitted, the process is as follows:

  1. All submitted materials are vetted in-house to ensure the proper requirements are present. If there is an issue with submissions, playwrights will be notified and given the opportunity to make corrections. We're here to help!

  2. All names are removed from the materials to ensure anonymity and replaced with an Entry Number.

  3. All materials are sent to the panel of adjudicators, along with a rubric for scoring. Adjudicators score materials on Concept, Dialogue & Structure/Dramatic Action.  

  4. Once the rubrics are returned, scores are tabulated. When all scores have been tabulated, the two Entry Numbers with the highest scores are determined and names of the playwrights are revealed to the in-house New Voices team.
