Circle X Theatre Co. invites Los Angeles-based playwrights to apply to our emerging and mid-career writers’ group. We seek writers who align with a shifting professional identity—that is, artists whose careers are on their way to becoming what they seek to be. We encourage playwrights to pitch the ‘play they are scared to write,’ the play that has been sitting in their imagination for some time or has come about in this moment of stillness and for whatever reason—impossibility of language, form, or subject—has not been written.
This Evolving Playwrights Group will take place from September 2020-May 2021 and culminate in a public reading series. Each writer will be paired with a playwright mentor for bi-weekly meetings. Mentors will be chosen for each writer by Jim Leonard and Lisa Sanaye Dring. Playwrights will also meet as a cohort every month to discuss new work.
