We love new work and we love creators of new work.
In the last few years OSF has created several programs and has made a tremendous commitment to commission, develop, and produce a great volume of new work.
As a result of these programs, we no longer accept submissions from writers or agents. The previous traditional submissions policy no longer serves our commissioning programs or season planning needs, and has set up expectations with playwrights and agents that we cannot meet without creating frustration for us and showing unintentional disrespect to artists.
Please know that although we are no longer accepting submissions, we have increased our dedication to the due diligence of reaching out to our partners in artistic offices and agencies, attending festivals, serving on panels, traveling around the country to see shows, and to have our trusted colleagues attend shows when we cannot.
Thanks for your understanding of this policy change.
