Free Event

Led by John Perovich, Southwest Regional Rep, and Sally-Jane Kerschen-Sheppard, Phoenix Ambassador, this in-person writers group will take place once a month, typically on the last Sunday of each month, for members in the Phoenix-Metro area.


We invite all dramatists/theatre writers, actors, directors, technicians, designers, and more interested in helping to workshop and cultivate new works to join us. It is free and open for all members and non-members. 


Sunday, November 20, 2022
MST: 5pm - 8pm


The format: Dramatists can submit a work of 10 minutes to 120 minutes to be read, with the possibility of several playwrights having their work read in a single night (time permitting). These are not professional readings, just a way for playwrights to hear their work read aloud. Participants should be ready to take turns reading and to provide feedback to other dramatists in a respectful manner, should they be interested in receiving it.


To have your work read: Interested writers should email John at at least one week prior to the meeting date with the piece or excerpt that they would like read. There are a limited number of slots available for time, and work will be selected on a first come, first served basis. Please also submit any content warnings you would like to share with audience members. When you submit, please indicate which date you are submitting for. When selected, please bring physical, printed copies of your play to be read or be prepared to share it electronically with others.


Location: Our goal is for this to be a traveling group in the Phoenix-Metro area. At least one week prior to the event, you will receive the address of our location for that month's meeting. The location will be updated on the event listing, and an email will be sent to everyone who has registered with the location update. If you don't receive the email, be sure to check your spam folder or check the event listing for updates.
