We welcome all original and unpublished works between 10 and 45 minute total running time (includes set up/breakdown and curtain call). Twelve to sixteen entries will be selected based on the quality of the writing, story/plot, and character development. Minimal technical requirements is advised as there are only 60 minutes for a technical rehearsal, all props and actors must fit into a 10- by 10-foot space (prior to set up and after breakdown), and there is no technical award.
WOAF rules and a script submission form are available below. A sample adjudication sheet is provided for educational purposes.
A total of three (3) original and unpublished scripts can be submitted for each playwright. Please remember that a separate submission form is required for each play. The script along with its submission form must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by Valentine's Day.

WOAF is an excellent opportunity to showcase an original one-act play in a competitive environment and to receive instructional feedback that will help to further develop the play for future productions. Cash prizes totaling more than $1,000 will be given to the best overall script, audience choice, production/director, ensemble, and performers.
