Call for Submissions (Edmonton): YouthRiot Participants

YouthRiot YEG is the sibling of Calgary’s YOUth Riot program, originally conceived by Third Street Theatre and now run by Alberta Playwrights’ Network. It is a free, ten-week program for youth on the 2SLGBTQIA+ spectrum that teaches varied styles of creative writing for performance, in a safe environment where participants can learn, grow, and thrive. Each week, a guest instructor will lead a workshop on a different style of writing for performance. The program culminates in a public presentation of work created by the participants over the ten weeks. 
 
We are excited to launch the inaugural year of the program here in Edmonton, and are looking for curious, enthusiastic participants with a strong desire to explore different forms of writing and creation. Does this sound like a fit for you?
