This international playwriting project involves over 200 playwrights who have signed on to write one or more one-acts about extraordinary women in both past and present history. The project’s ambitious yet focused goal is to write women back into the social consciousness as well as empower and promote female playwrights around the country.
They are now in their third year of writing pieces about 365 historical women a year.
You will find all the information below on how to be a part of our project, along with frequently asked questions, and available historical women.
How to apply: Choose a woman or women to write about. They are looking for 365 NEW women that our project has not yet covered. We do not accept repeats from previous years yet. You can make sure you don’t claim a repeat by searching through our historical women alphabetically. If you are not sure who to write about, see their site for a list of available women.
Once you have chosen some options, you will fill out the CLAIM FORM. You will be asked to choose at least 3 options, in case your lady has already been claimed.
To find the full details about how to submit a proposal for the woman you would like to write about and their formatting guidelines, please see their website. (And do review these guidelines carefully before applying!)
Deadline: 31 December 2016

I believe I filled out an application for this but have not received any confirmation response.
Hi Joyce, pretty sure they closed for applications but will be opening again next year. Will let you know if we hear more!
I want to know if my play TOUT OU RIEN has been correctly submitted for this year. Writing about Eliza Rachel Felix was approved and I think I submitted the finished piece, but would like some confirmation of it. Christine Emmert
Hi Christine, We recommend contacting the organisers directly – we aren’t running this opportunity, we’re just helping to spread the word!
