Writer Resources

 

I am asked often about other resources available to theatre writers.  Here is a start, though not at all comprehensive!

GRANTS:

Ontario Arts Council – Recommender Grants for Theatre Artists

Ontario Arts Council – Theatre Projects (Independent writing, or residencies)

Toronto Arts Council – Grants to Playwrights

Canada Council – Explore and Create (Research, Creation or residencies)

Diaspora Dialogues – Playwrights Mentoring Program (by invitation I believe)

 THEATRE COMPANIES with writing groups

Paprika Festival

Nightwood Theatre

Obsidian Theatre

Factory Theatre

Tarragon Theatre

The AMY Project (Artists Mentoring Youth)

COURSES:

These are primarily focused on playwriting, as opposed to fiction or other types of writing, and do not include full-time diploma or degree programs.

TARRAGON THEATRE:

Dramaturgy & Playwriting with Brian Quirt + Playwriting with Paula Wing.

GEORGE BROWN COLLEGE – Continuing Education

Playwriting with Kate Lushington

UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO – Continuing Education
