The Writers’ Round Table 2019

web site

The Joust is now accepting applications for our 2019 Writers' Round Table, a developmental playwriting group.

We are seeking playwrights to submit proposals for in-process, unproduced plays that re-imagine and/or subvert systemic norms (political, societal, religious, etc.). The Writers' Round Table will meet 2 times per month over a 9 month period to develop their plays with constructive feedback from other playwrights, a developmental workshop with actors, and dramaturgy from the artistic staff of The Joust, culminating in a reading festival produced by the Joust Theatre Company. Playwrights will receive a modest stipend for participating in the Round Table.

 How do I submit?

Please send the following in PDF form to JoustLiterary@gmail.com with the subject line "Writers' Round Table - YOUR NAME":

- A writing resume with your contact information

- A one-page artistic statement. Tell us what you're interested in exploring through your next play, what the Writers' Round Table can help you with, and how this project fits with our mission statement.

- If this is a project you have already begun work on, send us a few pages to give us a sense of the piece. If not, please provide a detailed summary of the project.

- A completed play that you feel best showcases your voice.

Please note that the Round Table will function at its best if everyone involved is present in person for every meeting, so if you have any conflicts spanning more than three consecutive weeks in the 2019 calendar year, please note that in your application.

Applications are due by Sunday, November 11th, 2018
