#DontChangeTheWords
#DontChangeTheWords is to educate theater students and instructors about the importance of copyright and licensing agreements. Enforcing copyright takes every single one of us. If you want to continue to perform the shows you love, and discover new shows by the artists you admire, and maybe even create something yourself one day, then we ALL have to obey the law.

The John Cauble Award for Outstanding Short Plays (One Acts) - Day 1 - Responses Following
The John Cauble Award for Outstanding Short Play award is named in honor of Dr. John Cauble, Professor Emeritus of UCLA, who provided guidance and support for the establishment of the Michael Kanin Award Program. His continued participation in the recognition of student playwrights through the former “Playwriting Awards Development Committee” is a cornerstone within the Michael Kanin Awards Program.
This program seeks to bring recognition to the area of student-written short plays and to encourage young writers to develop the short play form in preparation for the playwriting profession.
The four nominated plays will be performed as staged readings over the course of Wednesday and Thursday.

Submit! - The Ins and Outs of Script Selection
We hear a lot about "gatekeepers" at theaters who make selection decisions for seasons, festivals, and readings. Playwrights may wonder: Who are these beings, and what do they want?? Actors, directors, and other theater workers may wonder: How can I become one of these beings, to get access to lots of brand-new work (and sometimes get paid, if only in tickets)? In this workshop, we'll address both sides of the selection table, and ways you can prepare to grab a seat at it.

Playwriting is a craft, one that often demands discipline. Everything from getting from your outline to your first draft, and then on to further drafts, submissions, and networking can seem like an uphill battle. Come and chat with a fellow playwright that's been fighting the good fight for a few years now. Playwrights and theatre makers welcome.
