Play competition wants Latinos under-30 to “speak out”

LatinaLista — There's a popular saying that goes something like "everybody has at least one good story in them."
Well, if you're under 30-years-old, Latino/a and think you can tell your story in about ten pages in script format then the folks at Teatro Bravo want to hear from you.

The Phoenix-based theatre is accepting submissions to their UNDER 30: YOUNG LATINO PLAYWRIGHTS SPEAK OUT play competition.
The plays can be about any issue and written either in English, Spanish or Spanglish.
In addition to discovering new talent and promoting opportunities among young Latino playwrights, the competition is also "to uncover the issues in the minds of younger writers, and portray them on stage."
The selected submissions will be staged during the Latino Play Festival in 2009.
Deadline is October 1, 2008 and you can either mail or email your submissions to contest officials. There is no entry fee.
So what are you waiting for? Isn't it time you told that story?
P.S. If you've never written a play before, don't let that stop you. There are books that show you how to write in script format.
