November Writing Challenge


What is this?

Every 24 hour period of November's 30 days- write a short play.

Test your limits. Challenge your voice. No holds barred.

Good, Bad, Whatever.

You commit $15, and if you complete the challenge, the winners divide up the money in December*!

*The donation from each of the participants ($15) will be divided among the winners after Paypal fees and a 20% commission from Red Theater Chicago. In past years, the winners have gotten around $18- $25.

Sign Up: Registration is now closed until 2018

Email prompts will be sent to you each day in November.


You can post early, but you can’t post late and ‘catch up’. The cut off time is 8am CST the following day.

You keep all rights to your work.

You CAN use a pen name, but others will be able look at your work and use it as inspiration for their own post.

How to Win!

You win just by participating… ALL THIRTY DAYS. It’s gonna be fun!

Each day I’ll update a forum with little ‘missions’ to complete like using a certain prop, phrase, subject, etc.

You don’t HAVE to write to the prompts. You just have to write.

-Aaron Sawyer,  Artistic Director, Red Theater Chicago
