Ars Nova, the New York City–based theater development program, is currently accepting applications for their emerging writers collective, Play Group. Play members meet twice a month to share work, receive feedback, and build a sense of community, as well as fully “develop their plays with peer support and become inspired by each other’s work.” All up-and-coming playwrights willing to enter a collaborative environment are eligible for a two-year membership that begins in January of 2015. Alumni of Play Group include Annie Baker, Joshua Allen, and Sarah Burgess.
To apply, visit www.arsnovanyc.com for the online application, which requires one full-length play, a playwriting résumé, two professional references, and a personal statement. Applications will only be accepted via the Ars Nova website. Applications are due by Aug. 3.
