Urban Playwright's Club
Urban Playwright’s Club
Are you a playwright looking for feedback, inspiration, or writing accountability? Join this monthly meet-up of playwrights and hone your writing skills by sharing a scene from your script. Whether you’re working on your first play, or are an established playwright, all levels of experience are welcome.
Attendees will be asked to bring a theatrical work-in-progress and have the chance to participate in reading each other’s work aloud. Feedback/suggestions will only be offered by group members at the playwright’s request.
