Writers Ensemble

Develop your skills and voice as a playwright through a series of creative, practical workshops.

Writers Ensemble is a creative writing for performance program, led by playwright Julian Larnach (Literary Associate at Griffin Theatre Company), and guest professional writers joining online from around the country. Writers will meet every 2–3 weeks to sharpen their skills and develop their own scripts over a 6-month program.

  • Participate in workshops, discussions and practical exercises to create worlds, build narratives, develop characters, and unlock creative possibilities.
  • Be part of a supportive community of fellow-writers who collaborate together, and offer feedback on one another’s work.
  • Collaborate with emerging actors and directors on the development and presentation of works-in-progress.

Writers Ensemble is an introductory program for writers interested in theatre, and performers interested in writing, to discover their creative voice and create new works for performance.
