NEW WRITERS SERIES
The New Writers Series is designed for artists new to the process of playwriting. Participants are assigned a mentor to work one-on-one with them over the course of the year. Writers have a large amount of input in how they want to develop their work, what kind of professional artist mentor they would like to connect with, and what their final goal will be (a full draft, a one-act play, a completed first act, etc). Each ‘New Writer’ presents an excerpt of their work in the Festival, performed for an audience by professional actors.
