Free Year-Long Workshop for Young Playwrights in NYC

What an amazing city we are in — everywhere I look I find new wonderful opportunities for young artists and writers, and it’s my job to tell you about them!

APW-Postcard-front

This opportunity is for dramatic writers in high school.  Young Playwrights, Inc., founded by the inestimable Stephen Sondheim, is accepting applications for a FREE year long program for young playwrights.  The Advanced Playwriting Workshop meets Tuesday afternoons October, 2014 – May, 2015.  The program includes workshops with theatre professionals, outings to productions in the city (Broadway, Off-Broadway, and more!), and staged readings of student work in December and May.  Wow!!

To apply, print out and complete the application (which is available online HERE,) and send it in postmarked by Monday, September 22nd, 2014.
