Call to Writers – Love, Loss, & What I Wore Writing Contest

August 3 - September 6

Call for Writers
Love, Loss, and What I Wore | Writing Contest

Love, Loss, and What I Wore, a play written by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron, tells stories that will delight and astonish you with a collection of stories about women, relationships, and how clothes become significant in some of life’s memorable moments. These sincere stories contain moments that all of our hearts warmly resonate with.
We invite you to write an essay sharing your own memory of love, loss, and most importantly, what was worn. Entries will be judged based on creativity, quality of writing, and stage adaptability. Essays will be sent as blind submissions to jurors and winning entries will be read on stage by a cast member at one of the performances. The winning submissions will receive 2 free tickets to this performance. The Pump House will also share the winning essays on Instagram and Facebook.
This is a continued call to writers from last year, as the 2020 performances were rescheduled to this September 2021. Submissions from the 2020 theme–evolution of style during a pandemic–will be included in this year’s contest.
Submissions are due: Monday, Sept. 6th
Email entries or questions (with subject line “Call for Writers”) to: contact@thepumphouse.org
