Workshops (Calgary/ Edmonton): Playwrights’ Circles – Alberta Playwrights’ Network

Just 10 days left to register for the Edmonton Playwrights’ Circle!

“[The Playwrights’ Circle] gave me solid deadlines to work towards as well as provided me with professional advice, support, and critique to enhance my work and take it in a new direction” (2010 Participant)

APN has been offering Playwrights’ Circles for over 20 years and we consider it a cornerstone of our programming. The Playwright Circles offer playwrights an excellent opportunity to start and finish a first draft of a play or to continue working on a project that they’ve already started.   It is designed to keep playwrights working in a focused and supportive environment.

Our Playwrights’ Circle participants find that:

  1. They are productive writers— with a deadline for new content every 2 weeks
  2. They have direction— with the support and feedback of veteran playwrights Gordon Pengilly and Conni Massing 
  3. They have community— with the support of a close group of their peers (8max)
  4. They have experience— with a rehearsal and public reading of part of their circle project.
  5. They have motivation to keep going– with a consultation after the circle about their play

Cost: $300 (plus cost of membership for non-members)
