Supporting creative work by women
The Public Theater announced the fifth cycle of its Emerging Writers Group, which affords playwrights a two-year fellowship. The program is supported by the Time Warner Foundation. More than 400 writers applied for the 10 spots. Congrats to Kevin Artigue; Damon Chua; Keli Goff; Ricardo Pérez González; Glenn Gordon; Elizabeth Irwin; Paola Lázaro-Muñoz; Patricia Ione Lloyd; Jiehae Park; and Sarah Sander — the 2014-2015 Emerging Writers Group. We look forward to seeing their work on stages soon.
ICYMI, Entertainment Weekly ran an article about the dearth of female directors in Hollywood and interviewed female directors and producers to get the scoop. Check out Behind Every Great Film: Not Enough Women.
And, don’t forget to check in with the Works by Women Meetup Group. They are seeing a lot of shows this February.
