Opportunities for Kentucky playwrights not sponsored by KPW

Playwrights/Writers Residency

Application Summer 2021

By easing the financial burden of city-living, we strive to give qualifying writers the time and space to work. The process is open to any playwright who is a member of the Dramatist Guild, and any published writer. Currently there is no fee to apply to or attend the Residency program. Playwrights/writers are hosted for two to seven days from March to October.
