About this Event

They've written the work. Now you get to read it. Come see what the amazing students and faculty of the Piper Writers Studio have been up to with our fourth annual Piper Writers Studio Showcase on Sunday, December 13, 2020 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Arizona time on Zoom. 

Readers for the Piper Writers Studio Showcase will be announced in mid-November.

Interested in reading your work? The showcase is open to anyone who's taken (or taught) a class with the Piper Writers Studio. Preference may be given to individuals who have not read at previous showcases. Writers of all backgrounds, genres, and levels of experience are encouraged to apply. 

Applying to the Showcase

To apply to the showcase, students should submit up to 3 poems or under 3,000 words of prose through the submission form according to the following guidelines:

  1. Single Document: Submissions should be uploaded as a single word document
  2. No Identifying Information: No identifying information appears anywhere in the submission
  3. Formatting: Format your work in 12 pt font with 1" margins in a standard, legible font such as Times New Roman or Calibri. Pages should be numbered. Titles should be bolded. Page breaks should be inserted between each work. Otherwise: format your work as it is intended to be read

If you are submitting prose, we recommend you submit a complete short story or an excerpt. (We do not recommend editing something down to get it under the limit.) 

The deadline for submissions is October 15, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. Arizona time. All applicants will be notified by November 1. Readers will be announced in mid-November.
