The 29th Street Playwrights Collective develops the voices of emerging, mature playwrights through weekly craft discussions, writing sessions, and the critique and support of the work via readings with actors followed by structured feedback.
Our goal is to foster new work for the stage through workshop readings, and provide opportunities for public readings and workshop performances of members' works.
We commit to serving at least 50% women writers and other collaborators.

The Future is Female Festival
The 29th Street Playwrights participated in a highly successful national event celebrating International Women's Day with a Festival in partnership with Goddard Riverside Community Center raising funds for low income girls to attend Performing Arts Summer camp. The hugely popular evening represented the work of nine female playwrights, including our own Melissa Bell and Julie Richardson and was organized and produced by Emma Goldman-Sherman, Melissa Bell and Goddard Riverside.
