Write Now supports the work of emerging and established playwrights through a biennial national competition and process-focused workshop, engaging a broad representation of the TYA field in an ongoing conversation about new play development, creating a stronger environment for new work by fostering connections and collaborations, and cultivating a common language of shared values about new work from the perspectives of playwrights, producers, community stakeholders, and academia.
