The 2011/2012 Play Writing Mentorship program is currently underway. We are currently accepting submissions for the 2012/2013 Mentorship.
The three winners of the 2011 Young Playwrights Competition have been paired with three of Canada’s premiere playwrights: Dave Deveau, 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 2012 Directors, who will produce the plays as part of the 2012 IGNITE! Youth Arts festival.
The three shows will run Monday May 14th to Saturday May 19th, 2012 in The VanCity Culture Lab at The Cultch.
To participate in the 2012/2013 Playwriting Mentorship Program beginning in the spring, you must submit a one-act play to the 2012 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 2013 IGNITE! Youth Festival.
