Radio Hour Playwriting Contest

The River City Radio Hour is looking for five-minute radio plays or two-part plays lasting no more than 12 minutes. The scripts will be performed as part of the May or June Radio Hour.

Plays may be comedy, mystery or drama, but should appeal to a general audience. Two-part scripts should have a compelling cliffhanger at the end of part one.

Casts must be limited to no more than five actors, but they may play more than one character. The use of live and recorded sound effects is encouraged.

Winners will receive $50 prize for five-minute play and $75 for two-part play.

Deadline: April 15, 2011
