Young Playwrights in Process

Be inspired by writing! Young Playwrights in Process (YPIP) is an online playwriting competition for Indiana students in grades 6-12. The competition was created by IRT in 2005 through the Margot L. and Robert S. Eccles Trust. YPIP encourages middle and high school students across Indiana to write, creating plays that reflect and challenge their world. 

YPIP events will be done entirely online! All submissions, workshops, and events will take place virtually so we can continue to connect students across the state. 

Young playwrights – if you have a story to tell, we want to read it! Submit your play to YPIP and have the chance to receive $1000!

Educators – you can include our lessons as a part of your curriculum!

Details about YPIP will be available in fall of 2023.
