The Plays-in-Progress Workshop invites playwrights and aspiring playwrights to submit manuscripts to its annual playwriting contest. Manuscripts of plays that have neither been given a public reading nor been performed on stage will be accepted now through Sept. 11. The winning playwright will receive a $250 prize and have his or her play read before an audience that will provide feedback after the reading.

The public is invited to submit manuscripts, which will not be returned, that are 35-110 pages in length to Charles Kovich, Department of English, Rockhurst University, 1100 Rockhurst Road, Kansas City, MO 64110. Please include your name and phone number with your manuscript.

The reading will take place at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 28, in Sedgwick Hall, Room 115. Refreshments will be provided; donations will be accepted at the door.
