2010/2011 Play Writing Mentoship: submissions now being accepted
To participate in the 2010/2011 Playwriting Mentorship Program beginning next fall, you must submit a one-act play to the 2010 Young Playwrights Competition. The three winners of that competition will become the participants in next year’s Play Writing Mentorship and will have their work premiered at the 2011 IGNITE! Youth Festival.

The 2009/2010 Play Writing Mentorship program is currently underway. We are currently accepting submissions for the 2010/2011 Mentorship.
The three winners of the 2009 Young Playwrights Competition, Christine Quintana, Jennifer Bednard, and Deborah Vogt, have been paired with three of Canada’s premiere playwrights: Shawn Macdonald, Michele Riml, and Amiel Gladstone. Working closely with their mentor, the three participants will be editing and redrafting their winning submissions, preparing the scripts to handed off to the participants in the 2010 Directing Mentorship, who will produce the plays as part of the 2010 IGNITE! Youth Arts festival.
The three shows will run Monday, May 17th to Saturday, May 22nd in The VanCity Culture Lab at The Cultch.
This process will repeat itself next year.
