Minnesota Shorts Play Festival brings the best short plays from around the state and around the
globe to Mankato - the Thursday and Friday after Labor Day.
We received 512 national submissions for our festival. National submissions are now closed. However, Minnesota submissions
are open through midnight, March 1st. Playwrights from Minnesota can submit TWO scripts in pdf form. Please include your
name, postal address and phone contact on the title page only. Scripts are judged in the blind, so no identifying information
should be on pages other than the title page.
Performances will run 10 minutes, so the maximum number
of pages for your scripts should be 10. Send your scripts to email@example.com
by Midnight, March 1st.
Please avoid scripts with nudity or overuse of f-bombs.
The performances are performed in a community theatre venue targeted for 9th grade students and up. Your scripts should be
G, PG, or PG-13.
Judges will pick 7 national winners and 7 Minnesota winners for the festival, which
will run Sept. 10-11 in Mankato.
Best of luck.
