Writes of Spring 2020

How can your life change in just 5 minutes?

Writes of Spring is a unique writing competition that encourages students to enhance their writing skills through creative expression. Each year Orlando REP accepts hundreds of student submissions from kindergarten through 12th grade. Excerpts from the winning entries are compiled to create an original play using the students’ original words and ideas. The final script is fully produced by the Orlando REP and UCF graduate students and presented onstage at the Orlando REP in the spring. 

Submissions may be up to one full page. Students are encouraged to explore any and all styles of writing, be it fiction or nonfiction, poetry, essay, or any other format they see fit. Entries may be fictional or non-fictional. 

This year’s prompt invites students to explore what it means to be a good neighbor; whether it be within their community, school, state or the world!
