THE WRITE STUFF — Call for Writers

Wanted:  Westchester Writers


THE WRITE STUFF – Honoring  Westchester’s Legends & Legacies

Tutti Bravi Productions, Inc., in collaboration with the New Rochelle Council on the Arts,

issues a call for Westchester writers to submit their works about a

Westchester person, place or event, to be produced as a theatrical piece by the Company.

Manuscripts of plays, musicals, operas, poetry collections or essays which adhere to the guidelines,

should be submitted digitally, no later than May 31, 2019.

Up to three semi-finalists will be selected from the entries, then interviewed for further insights

into the piece, and to discuss a collaborative production process. 

Semi-finalists will be awarded an honorarium of $300 each. 

The winning selection will be produced by Tutti Bravi Productions in two stages:

1 – As a staged reading in the Fall of 2019;  and

2 – As a full production in 2020.

Guidelines for Entrants


1 – Writer must be a resident of Westchester.


2 – Entries may be in the form of stage plays, operas, musicals, poetry collections or essay     



            3 – The subject of the piece shall be tied to Westchester in some way:

a.     A former or current resident (e.g. Norman Rockwell, Thomas Paine, Madame Walker, etc.)

b.     Someone who has created something that is identified with Westchester, or the creation itself (e.g. Walter Lantz – Woody Woodpecker;  Washington Irving – The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, etc.)

c.      A Westchester location or building, or a site that no longer exists, that has some significance (e.g. John Jay Homestead, site of Battle of White Plains, etc.)


4 – Entrants require no previous publishing experience.  Anyone who enjoys writing and has

      an interesting topic that fits the geographical guidelines is eligible.


5 – Submissions need not be completely finished products, but enough of the framework   

should be fleshed out so that the project can be viewed as a whole.  Further collaborative work will evolve as the piece is being prepared for presentation.


Submit entries to:  [email protected] no later than midnight May 31, 2019.

Include your name, address, phone number and e-mail address, plus a short bio.

Call for Artists | Prisma International Art Prize

What is the Prisma International Art Prize?

We wanted to create a place for artists to grow and share their work to each other. A happening that could really be a chance to measure and compare their own work with other artists from all around the world. A prize that could become an exhibition which awards the best among them. All of the above became this new idea that we want to launch, to empower independent artists from all around the world in a friendly and competitive environment where favoritism does not exist. Prisma Art Prize is a seasonal competition which becomes an annual group exhibit in Rome. Every artist can apply.


Cultural Association Il Varco and Il Varco s.r.l.s are organizing the 1st edition of PRISMA Art Prize, an online art prize that takes place every three month with cash
award, that will transform in an annual group exhibition at the end of the fourth edition of the same year, with some of the artists that took place in the quarterly
editions, chosen by the art direction. The date and place of the exhibition will be communicated in due time.

We are looking for paintings, drawings, graphic art and engravings of any size and on any support. The call for entries is open to every artist without limitations of age,
place and country of origin.

The submission has a fee of € 25 and it allows the submission of up to three works. You can submit directly on the website and you can pay through Stripe or PayPal.
The upload of the pictures of all your works must be done inside the form. In 48 hours from the submission your work will be judged by our jurors, that will communicate
whether one of the submitted works will be finalist in the competition or not.

All the finalists will be put in the on-line gallery forever and they will compete for the quarterly award of € 500. They will also be in consideration for the annual exhibition.
All the participants will have the possibility to win a purchasing prize at the annual exhibition thanks to the collaborations with our partners.
