Deathscribe X Submissions: The Halfway Point

Greetings, lovers of all things morbid, ghoulish, and ghastly. The submission window for Deathscribe X has reached it’s apex. Soon it begins its slow descent. At the stroke of midnight on July 31st, it will close, and your scribbled offerings to the Great Old Ones will have to wait until next year… if They let you live that long.

Now in it’s 10th year, WildClaw Theatre is proud to produce Deathscribe: The Annual Festival of Horror Radio Plays. Every year we seek 10-minute radio scripts that are genuinely scary, imaginative, chilling, intelligent, suspenseful, horrific or downright grotesque. Writers may submit up to two radio plays to Deathscribe in any given year. Five scripts will be selected from all submissions. These five pieces will be performed on stage in front of a live audience. The writer of the winning piece, chosen by a celebrity panel of judges, will receive the coveted Bloody Axe Award, as well as a $100 cash prize.

In 2016 Deathscribe moved from its previous haunt to Lincoln Hall, 2424 N Lincoln Avenue in Chicago. This year’s festival will take place on Monday, December 4th.

For more information, including submission guidelines for writers, please explore our Deathscribe page.
