Women's Playwrights Circle open to women-identified playwrights


Deadline: June 15, 2023 
or when we've received 100 applications.

Application form: https://forms.gle/pfEVVp6Cc4NSWX7z7

This is the application form for the Women's Playwrights Circle (September 2023 to August 2024). All women-identified playwrights who reside in the US are welcome to apply. 

Preference will be given to women playwrights who are in PA, NY, NJ, CT, and DE. To be explicit, BIPOC, trans, cis and gender fluid women and those who identify on the spectrum of woman are welcome and encouraged to apply.

The first 100 applications will be considered for a spot in this year's Circle. Out of those who apply, 8-10 playwrights will be chosen to participate. Participation consists of attending up to 36 mandatory weekly (mostly) meetings (over the course of the year) to share pages, receive feedback and to develop their work. The summer session will focus on readings of full-lengths that may/may not be open to the public, depending on the determination of the playwright and the program's director.

Weekly Meetings on Zoom will be on Sundays from 2pm to 5pm. Please do not apply if you will not be able to commit to this schedule.

The deadline to apply is June 15, 2023 or when we've received 100 applications.
There is no fee to apply and no fee to participate.
Successful Applications will be contacted by August 15th.

This playwrights group will meet on Zoom.

Any questions about the Circle or about this application process should be directed to Pandora Scooter, Founder/Director at pandorascooter@gmail.com.

Every effort will be made to create as diverse a group of writers (based on race, gender identity, class, ability, background, education, etc) as possible. Please be sure to be particularly specific about all the ways in which you identify, to help us with this very important goal.
