Sudbury Theatre Centre is inviting submissions from emerging local playwrights and writers to take part in the fourth annual STC Playwrights’ Junction.

STC is continuing this initiative to develop local voices in a workshop environment.

The group will come together for 12 Monday evenings beginning this October in an exploration of the playmaking process, experimenting with different methods of inspiration and unearthing local stories.

During the 12-week program, writers will be encouraged to develop a one-act play, and will have the opportunity to see this work read in front of an informal audience in February.

The group will also observe the history of Canadian theatre, and the practice of being a professional playwright. Members have access to a lending library of plays, are visited by guest lecturers and also receive special invites to dress rehearsals of STC's productions.

Former participants have gone on to have their work professionally developed and produced.

The workshop will be led by STC's playwright-in-residence, Matthew Heiti.

The deadline for submissions is Sept. 14. Selected playwrights will be contacted by October 1.

Submissions should include a cover letter with contact information, a short bio, and a statement of what you hope to gain from the Junction experience, a maximum of five-10 pages of written work (preferably material written for the stage, but fiction/non-fiction/poetry/screenplays are also acceptable).

Packages can be emailed to Heiti at playwright@sudburytheatre.on.ca.
