The 2024-25 Writer’s Room Program provides BC- based playwrights or creative collectives with space, training, mentorship, and resources to use for exploring play development, creating new works, and practising leadership of their own artistic processes.
This is not a results driven program, but rather an opportunity to build skills together and see where your creativity lands when given the chance to engage. By providing artists with resources and training, new ideas and stories are certain to be explored. Our aim is to build community with artists who want to work in theatre for young audiences (TYA) and empower the next generation as leaders of change.
The Writer’s Room Program is produced and led by Erica Petty and Monica Ogden.
Writer’s Room creatives are selected by Story Theatre’s Creator Crew Youth Jury, led by Tenyjah I. McKenna.
