Play for Voices and Words without Borders Are Holding a Contest!
Calling all literary translators, radio dramatists, and international radio drama enthusiasts! Play for Voices seeks radio play scripts in English translation.
Play for Voices is a new podcast of international radio drama slated to launch in the spring of 2016. Our monthly hourlong show will present new productions of contemporary and classic radio plays from around the world, exploring their aesthetic, social, and political contexts through inventive, multilingual sound design and interviews with authors, translators, and other interesting people. We'll feature English-language plays and plays in English translation.
We're excited to be partnering with Words without Borders for our first contest. We invite submissions of translated radio plays of all lengths and from all languages. The Play for Voices producers and Words without Borders editors will select the winners. The winning play(s) will be produced by Play for Voices and published in Words without Borders.
