Call for Applications: Playwriting Circle Facilitator

Hosted by Realwheels Theatre

Realwheels Theatre is seeking an online facilitator for their next Playwriting Circle; a program for beginning and emerging playwrights who identify with disability.

Starting in mid to late September 2021, the program will be offered online over ten 2.25-hour Saturday sessions, followed by a public (online) reading of works-in-progress in early December.

You will be required to develop and lead a 10-week workshop that allows for the development of the participants in their skills, and prepares them for a brief presentation of what they have been working on. Besides educating these emerging writers on basic items such as dramatic action, formatting, narrative structures, character development, subtext, story spine and other theatrical storytelling fundamentals, it would also be expected that there would be time for regular sharing of work-in-progress between the participants and cultivation of a safe space for feedback on the work.

Deadline: July 11th

Organizations

Realwheels Theatre

Realwheels Theatre creates and produces performances that deepen understanding of the disability experience. We tell stories in which disability itself is not the focus of conflict, but rather forms the landscape upon which universal issues are debated onstage. Our vision is full inclusion and integration of disability both on – and off – Canadian stages; a barrier-free, diverse performing arts world that reflects the real world and all of its people.
