The Leah Ryan Fund for Emerging Women Writers: $2,500 Cash Prize

This playwriting award is for all women who consider themselves emerging playwrights (as distinct from fledgling or mid-career playwrights). Eligibility does not require that a submitted work adhere to the traditional three-act structure. One-acts, two-acts (even four-, five-, six- acts), monologues, adaptations, and any other wild (or deceptively tame) format will be considered with equal seriousness. This is for emerging playwrights all over the world. Value: $2,500 and other prizes. Deadline: 7 January 2019. Open for: All emerging women playwrights. Details here.     — S. Kalekar
