Play and Sketch Writing

Encouraging the creation of new plays has been a part of CITA’s mandate since the beginning of the organization. CITA’s commitment to writers is evidenced by the number of playwrights on the board, the quality of workshops offered at summer conferences, the number of new plays featured in our competitions, and our anthology of plays.

Winning full-length plays have been performed at professional and educational theatres across the country. Winning sketches serve the church and drama ministry communities. The winning entries of both contests (play and sketch) have been published in Christianity and Theatre. We hope that this publication will result in valuable exposure for the winning writers.

Beginning in 2012 CITA no longer conducts juried contests for new plays and sketches. We are implementing instead an ongoing program of script consultation, which we will announce on this page.
