Michael Kanin Playwriting Awards Program
The distinguished playwright and screenwriter Michael Kanin (1910-1993) arranged for a remarkable series of awards to be given to student writers whose plays are produced as part of the festival. The purpose of the program is to encourage college students to write for the stage by providing the opportunity for them to engage in the complete playwriting process.
The playwrights who have participating and associate productions can submit for the David Mark Cohen Award up until Dec. 1.
