Teen Playwrights: Send in Your Plays for the 2019 MDC Youth Readings

This year we are adding an exciting addendum to the Midwest Dramatists Conference, the Midwest Dramatists Conference Youth (MDCY).

On Sunday, September 29 we will present eight plays by local young playwrights. Writers in grades 6 through 12 from the Kansas City metro area are encouraged to submit their plays. There are no fees associated with this opportunity, but playwrights must be in attendance to have their plays read. Submissions will be capped at 100.
Plays must have no more than three characters and be no more than 10 pages of script with standard formatting.
Please send scripts to as a blind submission (no name or other identifying information), with contact details listed in the email, and putMDCY” in the subject line of the email. Scripts that fail to follow the submission guidelines will be disqualified. The deadline for submissions is June 1, 2019, and selected playwrights will be notified on or around July 15, 2019.
Please watch our Facebook page and website for further details.

The conference will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn in Olathe, Kansas, 12080 S Strang Line Road.
