A free gathering of writers of any genre. 



The Del Shores Foundation is based on the career and work of Sordid Lives creator and playwright/director/producer Del Shores. Our mission is to identify and support Southern LGBTQ+ playwrights and screenwriters. We’re excited to share that our inaugural Del Shores Foundation Writers Search has officially launched and we are currently accepting scripts!


This is an opportunity for southern LGBTQ+ writers to tell their stories and have their talents recognized. We are accepting plays, feature films, short films, and web series scripts for cash awards, grants toward production, and opportunities to meet with producers in Los Angeles.
