Stark Turn Players, in its continuing mission to foster local artists, hosts an annual competition to become an incubator for local playwrights to have the opportunity to workshop their works and have them produced at no cost to the playwrights.
Playwrights in the Greater Grand Rapids Area (residing or attending school in Kent County and it's contiguous counties) are welcome to submit their 10-Minute scripts annually to compete for production slots in our annual season.

-Playwrights submit a 10 minute short play due November 1st of each year.
-A maximum of nine scripts will be chosen for production in February
