The Black Women Playwrights' Group (BWPG)
is a service and advocacy group for African American playwrights writing
for the professional theater. The mission of BWPG is to support and promote
the work of our members as well as advocate on critical issues within the
theater world. Many of our members come to us after being misunderstood
or ignored in larger white, and sometimes male-dominated, writing groups.
There is an established need among regional theaters for new artists to
explore the African American experience, and BWPG is a conduit between African
American women playwrights and theaters, ensuring that the voices heard
on the American stage are rich and diverse.
MEMBER SERVICES INCLUDE:
- Monthly writing workshops
- Year round networking opportunities with directors, producers, designers and actors
- Encouraging, fun and professional atmosphereESTABLISHED WRITERS AND EMERGING ARTISTS WELCOME!
