Saskatchewan Playwrights Centre: Write Like You Mean It
Write Like You Mean It is an initiative to give playwrights the support needed to commit fully to a new script. The program commissions artists at various stages of their artistic development and provides resources that are often difficult to access when starting new projects, namely, time and money. Once the initial draft is complete, playwrights then have access to the dramaturgical and workshop resources that SPC can provide. This year two scripts have completed their projects in full and SPC will be posting a call for new submissions soon! The SPC Play Reading will be streamed August 4th at 9:00pm.
