Congratulations to our 2017-18 Call for Scores winner Emily Praetorius! We received a whopping 235 submissions and reviewed them over the course of three rounds. This year our call had a lower submission fee and a higher commissioning fee. Thanks to everyone who submitted!
We are commissioning Emily to write a piece for us to premiere in 2018. Below is a little about Emily and the piece that won our hearts, and a shout out to the other finalists who are receiving an Honorable Mention!
Our next Call for Scores will be announced in late 2017/early 2018. Subscribe to our spam-free newsletter to be the first in the know.
