12 Days of Christmas: Featured Friend–Playwrights Project

Posted by on Dec 19, 2016 in Blog, Community Events, Community Partner of the Month, Fresh Ink | Comments Off on 12 Days of Christmas: Featured Friend–Playwrights Project

As part of the month of December, we are going to profile 12 local art or writing organizations.

We have partnered with Playwrights Project on some playwrighting classes from time to time.  We have many overlapping goals with this partner, but they specialize in plays and theatre productions.  If you are interested in supporting future writers for the theatre or if you have written a play and want to find a way to workshop it, you should check them out.

The Mission of Playwrights Project is to advance literacy, creativity, and communication by empowering individuals to voice their stories through playwriting programs and theatre productions.

Playwrights Project is a nonprofit organization devoted to arts education. Founded in 1985, Playwrights Project reaches up to 10,000 people annually through programs proven to:

  • Teach the power of spoken and written language
