Fantasy – Fall 2017

Writers and Actors Reading and Performing Theatre is Seeking to World Premiere Six Unique Short Works for Stage and Film, Celebrating Cis & Trans Women of Color in the Traditional Fantasy Genre.

“In popular culture, the fantasy genre is predominantly of the medievalist form. In its broadest sense, however, fantasy comprises works by many writers, artists, filmmakers, and musicians from ancient myths and legends to many recent and popular works.” – Wikipedia

Cis & Trans Women and People of Color are heavily marginalized in the fantasy genre. Historically, Women have been subjugated and hyper-sexualized when featured in any way. Similarly, People of Color are often missing entirely.

WARP is seeking to contribute equitable and diverse roles to the Traditional Fantasy genre, highlighting strong characters without gender or ethnic bias.

Also seeking strong leaders within diverse communities who wish to direct. To apply, complete the contact form below.


Submission Guidelines:

  1. Original Work of the Submitter (Unique)
  2. World Premiere (Having Not Been Previously Produced)
  3. Short Form (10 – 20 Minutes in Length)
  4. Leading Roles for Cis & Trans Women of Color
  5. Minimum of TWO – Maximum of EIGHT Characters
  6. Traditional Fantasy Genre: Uses magic or other supernatural elements as a main plot element, theme, or setting

  1. I have gotten an email confirmation that my message was sent, but the fact that this page never went to a confirmation message makes me think there is something that needs to be adjusted in the webpage.

    Also, this is a super exciting project. Thank you for doing this!
