LARK'S OPEN ACCESS PROGRAM
The Lark is committed to providing access to all writers, regardless of age, ethnicity, experience, or whether they have agent representation. The Open Access Program ensures that the Lark’s programming reflects both global and U.S. ethnic diversity. The Lark distributes a call for submissions to the industry-at-large, seeking new plays and new voices, and the work is then carefully reviewed by a volunteer committee of readers, the Literary Wing, and the highest-ranking work is showcased in an annual Playwrights’ Week Festival. A submission to this annual festival is the ONLY way that the Lark is able to support unsolicited play submissions.
SUBMISSIONS FOR PLAYWRIGHTS' WEEK 2011
WILL OPEN IN AUGUST 2010, STAY TUNED
* Given that one of the primary goals of our open access program is to increase the number of writers we serve, alumni who have previously presented in a Barebones, Playwrights' Workshop, Studio Retreat, or Public Reading are not eligible to submit.
