Call for Submissions – Emerging Playwrights
This season Rumble Theatre is thrilled to offer an exciting mentorship opportunity for an emerging playwright.
The selected emerging playwright will receive season-long mentorship (November 2018 – June 2019) from our playwright-in-residence, acclaimed playwright and author Carmen Aguirre, as they work toward completing the first draft of a new play.
This mentorship includes monthly meetings with Carmen, free entry to Carmen’s playwriting workshop in December 2019, and a commission fee of $1,000.
