OTR/HTC Drama Contest update

OTR's first ever drama contest is also our first-ever collaboration with the Hunter Theatre Company, which hosts the undergraduate playwright festival, a night of student-produced scenes from Hunter playwrights and screenwriters from all levels of experience. By entering the OTR drama contest you are not only eligible for a $50 Gift Card to Amazon and publication in OTR Issue 52, but also for a staged reading of your scene at the festival. And vice-versa.

Judging for either prize is separate, so it is possible to win both prizes, or one or the other. The HTC chooses several scenes a semester to produce, and the OTR considers all scenes for publication. Publishing in the OTR in no way limits your ability to get your play/screenplay produced.

We have a 10-page or 10-minute limit on all entries (though we are flexible). Submissions should be emailed as an attachment to with the subject "DRAMA CONTEST: your name." In the interest of fairness we ask that your name not appear anywhere on your manuscript. Instead, write your name, address, Hunter email, and contact email in the body of your email.

As always, all our contests are also open to Hunter graduate students.

Deadline: Nov. 11

Good luck!
