We are only able to offer developmental support to Canadian playwrights. However, we are willing to
accept submissions of produced plays from international playwrights for production consideration.
We acknowledge, via e-mail, that your submission has been received. Due to volume of submissions, we
are unable to provide feedback to all applicants. Only those being contacted for development or
production purposes will receive further correspondence regarding their project.
