New Writers Now!

New Writers Now! is a creative forum for students, artists and community members.

This series of staged readings features professional actors performing plays fresh from the classroom, followed by a community discussion about the plays with the playwrights.

Young writers discover the value of sharing their work and recognize that the community is invested in the stories they tell.

New Writers Now! promotes community dialogue and respect for young artists.

Join YPT for a one-night-only staged reading of four fun, fanciful plays written by female playwrights ages 12-22. Professional actors bring to life tales of magic bracelets, superhero sisters, evil queens and more! 
Each of the playwrights featured in Girls Write Out! wrote their pieces in YPT’s In-School Playwriting Program. Ranging in age from 12-22 years old, they are among the youngest playwrights whose work you will see at the Women’s Voices Theater Festival.
