The Playwrights Guild of Canada (PGC) is proud to announce Pitch It!, a national pitch showcase for professional playwrights. Since the fall of 2022, participants of the Playwrights Resiliency Program have been guided through multiple professional development activities to help them learn how to promote their own work to producers, presenters, and publishers. As a result of this program, over 60 playwrights from across Canada have created project pitches in either written, audio, or video form that are now available to view on a custom website called Pitch It!
Each pitch includes a comprehensive profile of each playwright and visitors can browse the pitches geographically by province. To help remove barriers that theatre creators often face when trying to get their work noticed, we’re encouraging theatre practitioners from far and wide to view the pitches available from the local artists in their area and beyond. You may discover your next project, collaborator, or fellow community member!
The Pitch It! website will only be active until June 30th, 2023. Act now and view the Pitch It! website here: https://pitchit.playwrightsguild.ca/
This initiative is made possible by the Canada Performing Arts Workers Resilience Fund from the Government of Canada.
