INKUBATOR writers' group:
Year-long program for professional writers with monthly meetings
Resident Director: Alex Tobey
The Art House INKubator is a group of playwrights who will meet on a monthly basis between October 2018 and May 2019 to share their work and further the growth of a specific piece that each playwright is developing. Alex Tobey, resident director of the program, will be joined by special guests each month (playwrights, directors, dramaturgs, literary managers) who will moderate conversations focused on peer feedback, guidance, and personalized support for each playwright’s individual process. In the spring, each writer will team up with a professional director to present a public reading or workshop performance as a part of the new annual Jersey City Spring Festival of New Plays.
Meetings are tentatively scheduled for the following dates: October 1, November 5, December 3, January 7, February 4, March 4, and April 1. Outside meetings and rehearsals will increase in April and May in order to prepare for the Jersey City Spring Festival of New Plays on May 9-12.
Applications are open to all playwrights in the NJ/NY area who can commit to the monthly meetings and have a specific play they are looking to write and develop over an eight-month process.
- Your current playwriting resume.
- A one-page artistic statement describing your artistic goals as a playwright and a specific play or project that you’re hoping to explore through the Art House INKubator.
- A writing sample. This could be a short play, a full length, or an excerpt (either finished or still in process). The writing sample should give us a taste of who you are as a playwright and feature you at your most unique self. If your sample is an excerpt from a larger play, please also include some context.
Email the above requirements as a single PDF to email@example.com by September 3 at 11:59 PM. Accepted playwrights will be notified by September 10.
