Looking to meet fellow playwrights? Have an itch to read your work publicly?
Apply to Craft Bites!
Craft Bites is a webinar series that introduces PGC members and their work to peers while being able to invite others to listen in. Applications for this coming round in 2023/204 of readings will open April 12th. Please see dates below for this year’s Craft Bites application dates.
Craft Bites is launching Internationally with English speaking playwrights from other countries around the world!
Successful applicants will be paired up with another playwright from another country and will be given a date and time to meet online. During that online meeting, you will each read a 10-minute excerpt from your own play and then discuss your craft together. This will be a public, online event and you will receive a $150 reading fee through the PlayConnect Program. This is a great way to discuss your craft with fellow playwrights, promote your work, and test out new drafts – raw and fresh material is welcome here just as much as older works that you want to re-visit!
To be eligible for Craft Bites, you need to be a PGC member (all types of membership count). For this round, PGC is giving priority to members who have not participated in a Craft Bites before.
Applications open on April 12th, 2023
Applications close on May 8th, 2023
The process will consist of an application which will close on May 8th, 2023. The second step consists of a form with your availability sent out in May. The third step consists of a Jury panel that will evaluate each application and pair up the playwrights to those participants from other countries. All applicants will be notified in July of whether they are successful with their application.
PGC would like to thank the selection committee: Marie Barlizo, Melinda Doherty Griffiths and Myekah Payne.
Please note we have limited spots as we begin this new pilot program, and every effort will be made to include as many playwrights as possible.
