The Next Link Project is New York Musical Theatre Festival's (NYMF’s) primary writer service program. It empowers emerging musical theater writing teams by providing entrepreneurial training, career networking opportunities, dramaturgical support, and other services, culminating in a subsidized production in the Festival. The Next Link Project is open to any writer – produced or unproduced, with or without agency representation. The program receives hundreds of submissions from all over the world each fall, and every script and demo recording are reviewed by several members of NYMF’s Reading Committee. Shows are submitted “blind”, meaning the writers names are not on any of the materials the readers review. This ensures the work is judged on what is written, not who wrote it, giving all submissions an even playing field. The finalists are then reviewed by a Grand Jury comprised of leading musical theatre artists. Ten shows are accepted in to the Next Link Project each year and awarded production spots in the Festival!
The Final Deadline is extended to midnight, Monday 11/11, 2013.
