Writing Tomorrow - The Power of Connection

In these times, how can we stay connected when we cannot be together?

PTC programs have the power to connect people. We match artists with mentors, collaborators, fellow creators and audiences. We provide time and space  – at the moment, much of it virtual – for artists to reimagine reality and explore the writing of tomorrow.

But many artists need your help to even participate. Our summer 2020 Writing Tomorrow campaign provided access for many writers in the fall session of our most popular program for emerging writers, Block A. In small cohorts matched with a senior mentor, writers discuss the fundamentals of writing for performance, expand their craft through imagination-stimulating writing exercises, and learn from each other. The winter session begins in January.

Can you connect writers in the winter session of Block A?

Each writer’s participation is valued at $250. Every year, PTC extends bursaries and payment plans for writers in need. Your donation will open the door for all Winter Block A participants.

Even through these difficult times artists will keep firing up their imaginations, connecting with others and audiences. Let’s let them know it matters that they are still creating. Donate to Writing Tomorrow – The Power of Connection and join us in building a culture of creativity and generosity.
