Time to dust off that manuscript. Piccolo Spoleto has opened applications for next year’s festival, and they’re accepting submissions for General Performer (the catch-all category that includes everything from poetry to visual arts to music to theater), the L’Organo Organ Recital Series, and the Piccolo Theatre Series.

The application process is pretty extensive, often requiring a video and — perhaps most daunting — a plan to fund your production or performance, so be prepared. Applications are due Nov. 16 and can be accessed on Piccolo Spoleto’s website.
