The 14th annual Quad City Playwrights' Festival is accepting original 10-minute scripts (maximum 10 pages) by Quad-City area playwrights through April 15, 2013. Playwrights may submit one original script of any genre by a single author. No adaptations will be considered.

Scripts may not be excerpts from larger works. Musicals and plays with copyrighted music or lyrics will not be considered. A jury will select a maximum of five scripts for their originality and potential for engaging a live audience.
