New Writers Now!

New Writers Now! is a creative forum for students, artists and community members.

This series of staged readings features professional actors performing plays fresh from the classroom, followed by a community discussion about the plays with the playwrights.

Young writers discover the value of sharing their work and recognize that the community is invested in the stories they tell.


New Writers Now! promotes community dialogue and respect for young artists.

The staged reading is a pivotal moment in a playwright’s creative process. The first time the written word is spoken aloud and interpreted by actors is a moment full of power and magic.  This is when jokes land in appreciative guffaws or fall flat in silence, when a play finds its rhythm and begins to chart its course.  It is a thrilling, exciting time for our young playwrights and we invite you to be a part of the magic. 

Through New Writers Now! you get a chance to view the process and provide constructive feedback.  Join us at our next reading!
