Neukom Institute Literary Arts Awards now accepting 2021 submissions

In an effort to understand, promote, and honor the convergence of art, science, and real life, the Neukom Institute for Computational Science at Dartmouth established the Neukom Institute Literary Arts Awards in 2018, a global award program to honor creative works around speculative fiction. The annual awards distributed by the Institute include one in playwriting.

Submissions are now being accepted for the 2021 Neukom Institute Literary Arts Award for Playwriting. Submissions of full-length plays and other full-length works for the theater will be accepted; all submissions must address the question "What does it mean to be a human in a computerized, digitized world?" Playwrights with either traditional or experimental theater pieces, including multimedia productions, are encouraged to submit works to the award program.

As in the past, the award comes with a $5,000 honorarium as well as a support for a two-stage development process with table readings at local arts festivals/organizations. Note that works that have received a full production are NOT eligible for the competition. 

The deadline for all submissions is January 15, 2021. The awards will be announced in the spring of 2021.
