It is the only dedicated symposium in the region that brings together both national and local playwrights with master playwrights as well as agents, publishers, actors, directors, technology experts, and artistic and business leaders working in the national theater community. CityWrights goes to the heart of a playwright’s craft by offering master classes and workshops, readings and dialogue that concentrate on craft, technique and creative development.
