Submissions are now being accepted by The Living Room for Artists for the sixth annual Summer Play Festival (SPF), which will be presented at The Public Theater in New York City from July 7 through August 2, 2009.
Submissions are open to all emerging writers of plays and musicals, with or without representation. There is no fee to submit.

Since its inception in 2004, SPF has produced over 70 original works, and has provided an opportunity for writers to present their material and craft in a protected environment, guided by established professionals, with full financial support. SPF has had tremendous success in helping to identify talented, emerging artists, and many of our writers have enjoyed Broadway, off-Broadway, international and regional productions. Others are now developing projects with film and television companies.
In the coming year SPF alumni will continue to be seen across the US and the world, including Noah Haidle, SPF 2004 (Saturn Returns, Lincoln Center), Beau Willimon, SPF 2007 (Farragut North, Atlantic Theater Company), Jacquelyn Honess-Martin, SPF 2008 (Smith, The British Museum in London, England), and Jamie Pachino, SPF 2006 (Splitting Infinity, San Jose Rep).
In the past year alone, several SPF alumni have had their work produced around the world, including Quiara Hudes, SPF 2005 (In The Heights, Broadway), John Bucchino, SPF 2004 (A Catered Affair, Broadway), Brooke Berman, SPF 2004 (Hunting & Gathering, Primary Stages), Jim Knable, SPF 2006 (Spain, MCC), Anton Dudly, SPF 2004 (Substitution, SOHO Playhouse), Catherine Trieshman, SPF 2005 (Crooked, Julia Miles Theater), and J.T.
