Call for Submissions (Calgary): Jupiter Theatre Seeks Writers


(exp)lore is the first installment in Jupiter Theatre’s new Digital Audio Theatre Experience, a podcast to be enjoyed in the community while social distancing. This anthology of site-specific stories takes an imaginative dive into the past and future of Calgary’s inner city.

We are seeking writers for individual episodes for round two of this new audio theatre project. At this time, we are seeking submissions from Calgary-based BIPOC artists. Jupiter Theatre encourages submissions from diverse BIPOC artists regardless of gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.

(exp)lore will be an ongoing anthology, beginning with this season of 30-minute audio plays released regularly starting in September 2020. Writing and revisions, guided by the co-creators of the project, will begin in July or August 2020. Writers will be paid a fee per episode.

To submit, please email the above pitch(es) and the following to Andrew G. Cooper at andrew@theatrejupiter.com with the subject line “WRITER SUBMISSION”.
1. Your resume as a writer or list of previous writing experience.
2. A writing sample of previous work (maximum ten pages).

Please attach files as separate .pdf files. If these submission guidelines are a barrier to you for any reason, please reach out to us to discuss.

DEADLINE TO SUBMIT FOR THIS ROUND: Monday, July 20th, 2020 at 5:00 pm.
