Exquisite Corpse Company is seeking playwrights for its 2015 Fall Writers’ Lab

web site

The Lab is an intensive, designed to create a safe space for playwrights to come together, experiment, and inspire each other to create new and refreshing work that departs from what writers might be more inclined to write on their own. The Lab will be led by ECC Literary Director, Blake Bishton.

After voting and agreeing on a theme that gets everyone's creative juices flowing at the initial meeting, writers will begin to receive and submit prompts. The group will use these prompts as jumping off points for the work they create. All writers will be expected to produce approximately 10 pages of work a week. The goal is for every writer to have a draft of a new short one-act play by the end of the process.

At the conclusion of the lab, ECC will produce a public reading of each play as part of ECC's Drinks and Drama Reading Series. This 4 week series features a different Brooklyn bar as a setting for each reading!

Writer’s Lab meets on Tuesday evenings and Saturday afternoons from September 22nd - October 13th. Drinks & Drama will run on Tuesday evenings from October 27th - November 17th.

Exquisite Corpse Company is a Brooklyn-based, performance and integrated arts company. ECC focuses both on promoting the work of women within the theatre - on or off stage - and on creating pieces that integrate other creative mediums. For more about the company, please visit: www.exquisitecorpecompany.com.

To submit, please send us a resumé and a sample of your writing approximately 10 pages in length. This can be taken from a larger work, or be a stand alone piece.

Deadline for submissions is September 7, 2015.

For more information or to submit, please email contact@exquisitecorpsecompany.com.


We look forward to reading your submissions!
