2023 Socrates Annual Fellowship

Deadline: December 4, 2022

Fellowship recipients will receive a $8,000 production grant to support their project, a $2,000 honorarium, and three-months of seven-days-a-week access to the resources and fabrication facilities of the Park’s outdoor artist studio.

Artist Fellows are responsible for the fabrication, transportation (if necessary), and installation of their works. Socrates provides limited technical and installation assistance during a three-week installation period, M–F, 10AM–6PM. Specifics of installation assistance will be discussed with each artist selected.

Thematic Prompt: Transformation

Applicants to the 2023 Socrates Annual fellowship & exhibition program are encouraged to submit proposals focused on the idea of ‘Transformation’, with the goal of presenting public artwork for a fall 2023 group exhibition.

Transformation: A thorough or dramatic change in form or appearance or a complete change in the appearance or character of something or someone, especially so that thing or person is improved.

In nature, the metamorphosis of a seed into a plant or a caterpillar into a butterfly is often considered symbolic of how transformation is a good, necessary, and beautiful process. Transformation can also be tricky or painful, needing careful planning to consider why it is needed, what would happen without it, and what are the key ingredients for a successful outcome. Transformation might also question what is required to deal with changing circumstances in any situation.

The transformation of Socrates Sculpture Park itself is an on-going process. Abandoned land-fill site turned cultural space, community park and unique environment for artists, its goal of long-term sustainability is threatened by the impact of forces like gentrification and the climate crisis. Its continuing transformation will help build the resilience needed for that sustainable future.

What does transformation mean to you?

The 2023 William Goldstein / Dr. Phibes Award For Screenwriting Submissions

Deadline: December 12, 2022

Columbia University School of the Arts is excited to announce the annual William Goldstein / Dr. Phibes Award for Screenwriting. In partnership with Columbia University, William Goldstein, 1955 alumnus of Columbia’s General Studies, author of the cult-classic horror series of Dr. Anton Phibes films and books, has established an annual prize of $10,000 to be awarded annually for the best horror feature script in the style of Dr. Phibes, written by a current Columbia University student.

The Abominable Dr. Phibes, which premiered on May 18, 1971, was an unexpected box office hit. Critics and casual movie-goers alike praised the dark humor of the script in particular. Since then, and especially with the rise of streaming and the availability of movies on the internet, Dr. Phibes has built up a devoted, international following of "phans," including Quentin Tarantino, Stephen King, Kumail Nanjiani, and Tim Burton.

Mr. Goldstein hopes that establishing this scholarship prize will allow a new generation of horror writers to walk the halls that inspired him to create Dr. Phibes. The annual screenplay prize will be awarded for an original feature screenplay in the style of Dr. Phibes -- but not using the character -- and will be based on multiple guidelines, including Inventive Genius, Love Story, Musical Score, Streamline Moderne, Beauty, and High Tech.

The first ever William Goldstein Award for Horror Screenwriting will be presented by Goldstein himself at the Columbia University Film Festival in 2023.

Fellows are provided with private accommodations on the grounds of The Fine Arts Work Center, as well as a monthly stipend. The duration of the residency is entirely self-directed, intended to serve as unrestricted time for writers in the crucial, early stages of their careers.

For the first time, the Fine Arts Work Center is implementing three tiers of application pricing in an effort to increase access to the process. The Writing application fee is $40 from November 2 to November 15 at 11:59 am. The application fee is $55 from November 15 at 12:00 pm to December 1 at 11:59 am.

Emory Playwriting Fellowship 23-25 Applications

Deadline: December 16, 2022

Applications are now open for Emory's 2023-2025 Playwriting Fellowship. The Department of Theater Studies and Creative Writing Program seek applicants for two-year Fellowship in Playwriting at Emory University in Atlanta.

Emory University offers a two-year Playwriting Fellowship in connection with its BA in Playwriting, a joint major offered by Theater Studies and the Creative Writing Program. Beginning in Fall 2023, the Fellowship offers a $45,000 salary, health benefits, and $1,000 annual travel fund. The Fellow will have a 2-1 teaching load, including playwriting workshops, literature courses such as 'Contemporary Drama,' and other courses to support the BA in Playwriting, within Theater Studies, Creative Writing, and/or English.  The Playwriting Fellow will give a public reading for the Creative Writing Reading Series, and work with Theater Emory and its Playwriting Center, including the contribution of a new play to the “Brave New Works” New Play Festival.  Fellows may be asked to direct student honors theses and/or other mentoring activities.   

A two-year commitment is assumed but the contract renewal for the second year is contingent on a positive review of the first year. 

“It’s rare to find a position that provides this kind of support not just to my creative work, but my whole being. The long-term stability afforded to an Emory Fellow is unmatched by most programs out there. What’s more is that the whole city of Atlanta is there at your feet too, and there are so many exciting artists and cultures present here. It’s a special and energizing city in which to create.” -Megan Tabaque, 21-23 Playwriting Fellow 

"The Emory Playwriting Fellowship is a rare gem among fellowships. Not only is there ample time and resources to pursue one's creative work, there is also the perfect balance between structure and freedom in exploring one's curricular work as an early-career educator. I was able to create and teach courses that directly align with my own research interests, and work with the most inspiring students and colleagues. My playwriting career also grew leaps and bounds during my fellowship, which was no coincidence — I would not have been able to nurture and travel for opportunities in the same way in any other position." -Kimberly Belflower 19-21 Playwriting Fellow, Current Assistant Professor of Dramatic Writing at Emory University

Qualifications

Required:  MFA in Playwriting, or equivalent degree, within the past 8 years, and related teaching experience.  

Desirable:  Promising record of production and/or play development in regional or national theater. 

Required Materials

  • Cover letter reflecting upon how the fellowship will facilitate your professional development, and your teaching experience and philosophy. Include your experience and vision regarding the teaching and mentorship of students from diverse backgrounds.    
  • CV (include educational background and graduation dates)
  • Two confidential letters of recommendation. Letters submitted via Interfolio.  
  • A writing sample, which must be submitted without identifying name. Writing sample must be a full-length play. 

Please apply via Interfolio: https://apply.interfolio.com/115899

Vassar Review Call for Submissions

Deadline: January 18, 2022

For our eighth edition, the Vassar Review strives to look inward. We seek meditations on and explorations of the interior; of spaces constructed within the world and within ourselves that house and foster closeness. The interior is intrinsically the realm of both the private and the cherished. Our interiors are our intimacies. How do these spaces and moments allow for refuge in an increasingly public world? We wonder what the act of letting visitors in can produce if we are audacious enough to try. Let us reclaim the interior, both conceptual and physical, and the creative and personal intimacies that flourish within it. We would like glimpses into your inner worlds and private lives; inner lives and private worlds—if you’ll have us. The Vassar Review is a revival of the literary arts journal published by Vassar College from 1927 to 1993. Each edition approaches its theme as a subject for a discourse of contemporary works across mediums. The journal is released annually in the spring in print and online. We will be accepting submissions  relating to the theme of “Intimacies & Interiors” from November 15th, 2022 until January 18th, 2023. We accept a range of work including poetry, prose, sculpture, soundscapes, performance, scripts, visual and digital media, and beyond. Bilingual texts and excerpts from longer dramatic works such as screenplays and graphic novels are also considered. We do not accept works previously published in print but will consider previously exhibited visual work. Simultaneous submissions are allowed but require that artists notify editors if the work has been accepted elsewhere. All contributors retain copyright over their individual works. For full guidelines as well as the official submissions form, please refer to review.vassar.edu/submissions.

A is For's Annual Playwriting Contest About Reproductive Justice

Deadline: January 31, 2022

A is For is accepting submissions for one-act plays about reproductive justice, now through January 31st!

The A is For Playwriting Contest and the all it takes is ONE- ACT Play Festival engages playwrights who are passionate about abortion rights and reproductive justice, and offers audiences the opportunity to see those stories represented on stage. Each year, three winning plays are selected by a jury of theatre professionals, and then performed in a staged reading by a talented group of actors. Over the past two years, we have received more than 400 one-act plays about reproductive justice, and have brought 6 of them to the virtual stage. The 2023 ONE-ACT Play Festival will take place live in a New York City theater — our first in-person presentation since the pandemic, and we are so excited for it!

A is For believes that theatre is a powerful platform through which to share stories, debunk myths, and create lasting change. We believe that theatre can transform. We want to challenge the abstract, politicized, and stigmatized ways people think about abortion and reproductive justice. We want to hear the stories you want to tell.

On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, revoking our federally-protected right to safe, legal abortion. This work has never been more important. At this moment, we believe A is For Action.

2022 MUSE OF FIRE FESTIVAL THEME

“..if you prick us, do we not bleed?”

In Shakespeare’s time, much like our own, society was full of inequalities. Humans divide ourselves over whatever makes us different, rather than acknowledging we’re all the same. 

This year we welcome stories that make us look at what it really means to be human and how we interpret that definition for our own purposes. 

Submission Information and Guidelines:

  • Three finalists will have staged readings of their scripts at the Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse during the weekend of June 30 - July 2, 2023;
  • The winning play will receive a prize of $5000.00 U.S., and the possible opportunity to further develop their script with the members of the Atlanta Shakespeare Company;
  • Opening Date for this competition is October 15, 2022; Final Entry Date is April 15, 2023;
  • Scripts will be adjudicated by a diverse panel of professional artists (including playwrights, actors, directors, producers, and stage managers), and will be judged on creativity, adherence to the theme, originality, and overall quality;
  • Plays MUST BE NEW WORKS; scripts that have previously been published or produced will not be accepted; any play which has had more than one consecutive performance by a non-college or university theatre which charged admission and/or had a review will not be considered; furthermore, plays may not be under option, commissioned, or scheduled for professional production or publishing at the time of submission;
  • Adaptations and collaborations may be considered (please note that the prize money will be awarded to the winning script, not each individual collaborator)

Producer II, Criminal Productions

Vox Media Studios

Remote 

Criminal is one of the most-listened-to podcasts in the United States and has been called “the thinking person’s true crime podcast.” Founded in 2014, Criminal has been awarded numerous documentary prizes and has been praised by the ACLU of New York, the New York Times, and by the Prime Minister of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern. 

In 2018, the Criminal team launched This is Love. Time Magazine says, “The podcast tries to decode the mystery of how our romances, obsessions, and relationships drive us. Listening to it can feel like a contact high.”

Criminal Productions is part of Vox Media, the leading modern media company. We guide our audience from discovery to obsession. We inspire essential conversations about what’s now, what’s next, and what’s possible.

As a community of journalists and storytellers, business professionals, creators, and technologists, we believe it is a moral and business imperative to amplify voices: to cultivate diversity, equity, and inclusion throughout our organization and media. This applies to our candidates, our teams, our storytelling, our creative work, and our platforms, products, and partnerships.

Producers plan and execute all phases of reporting and production for episodes of Criminal, This is Love, and future projects. Producers work closely with colleagues in a collaborative environment, sometimes taking the lead on writing a story and other times supporting colleagues with booking, research, tape-gathering, tape-editing, fact-checking, mixing, and more. If you're right for this role, you're a hands-on, deadline-driven, self-directed producer who's comfortable working independently to deliver high-quality produced pieces—but thrives in a team setting where many different voices are welcomed into the process of shaping the work.

WHAT YOU’LL DO

  • Pitch unique and compelling story ideas and construct innovative ways to tell them
  • Locate people who are hard to find and cold-call strangers
  • Book studios and coordinate schedules with guests and our host
  • Regularly conduct in-depth research and develop host questions
  • Write scripts for the ear
  • Edit interview audio and score episodes using Pro Tools, or be ready to learn how
  • Participate in long collaborative group edits with our host and other producers
  • Write social and newsletter copy as needed
  • Jump in to help colleagues with other production tasks as needed

WHO YOU ARE

The ideal candidate has 5+ years of experience working on a narrative, non-fiction podcast. We’re looking for someone with a demonstrated ability to identify and structure a surprising story. You know your way around editing software - preferably Pro Tools. 

Ideally you’re drawn to unusual details, with a hearty appetite for research (looking for a gem in a newspaper archive, getting curious about exceptions, and overlooked people, ideas, and institutions). 

You think it feels good to write and revise collaboratively. You meet deadlines, and independently push your work forward in between edits. When you don’t know something, you’re comfortable admitting it. When you need help, you’re comfortable asking for it. You care deeply about facts and getting them right, and fact check yourself (even when you feel sure). When you approach stories and subjects, you’re a good listener. You’re open-minded, and interested in nuance and ambiguity. 

Because we’re a small team, you must excel at collaborating, and be ready to help with all aspects of thriving podcasts, beyond direct production.

To apply, please submit a résumé, cover letter, and links to 3-5 stories you’ve written and / or produced.  In your cover letter, please be sure to address the following questions: What appeals to you about working with us? Which Criminal or This is Love episodes stand out to you? What’s your approach to finding, researching, and writing stories? Feel free to go longer than you usually do in a cover letter — we’d love to get a sense of how you think, write, and edit.

This is an in-person, permanent, full-time position and an ideal opportunity for someone who is skilled in facilities and production, enjoys creative problem solving and systems, and is interested in the arts. Mercury Store is committed to reasonable working hours. In that vein, we are open Monday through Friday 9:30am-6pm, and hours are adjustable to best support the production schedule.
