Industry Listing, Submission.

Deadline: May 15, 2020 11:59 PM EST

Nightwood Theatre is currently accepting applications for the 2020-21 Write From The Hip Program.

About the Program:

Write From The Hip is a year-long script development program designed to support self-identifying emerging playwrights through mentorship, participation in a playwright’s unit, and one-on-one dramaturgy. Participants work towards the completion of a full-length play that culminates in a public reading with professional actors and a director as part of our Groundswell Festival. We are looking for women playwrights who are emerging in craft - there is no age limit to apply and our definition of women expressly includes trans and non-binary identities.

Please note: We accept applications from all regions. If you are accepted into our WFTH unit, we do ask that individuals attend the culminating day long workshop and public presentation as part of our Groundswell Festival in person (whenever possible). Some meetings throughout the year can be attended using Skype/Facetime technology, but some travel may be necessary.

We at Nightwood are dedicated to a collaborative and accessible application process—especially at the current moment as everyone is responding to the devastation brought forth by COVID in different ways. During this unprecedented time, some days we’re inspired to create and generate, while other days we need to pause and reflect. If there is anything we can do to make this application process smoother for you, please do not hesitate to contact Naz Afsahi at naz [at], and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

How to Apply:

Completed submission packages must be received via electronic copy, no later than May 15, 2020 11:59 PM EST. For more details visit:
