It's only fitting that this writing contest is named after Eudora Welty. Not only was she on the New Stage board of directors, but her work is also is a glorious, beaming example of what it means to be good writer. The series had a record number of submissions this year from all around the state, and three of them will be selected for top honors. After each reading, the writer will host a discussion with audience members to get feedback on his or her work. The performances will be a good preview of what's to come in the literary and theatre scenes, and a unique opportunity to be in community with fellow and/or aspiring artists.
