Purpose of the 印第安纳州 玩wrights Circle

The purpose of the 印第安纳州 玩wrights Circle (IPC) is to encourage and develop playwrights, and to promote script 写作, 观众发展, 以及相关艺术.

In 2012, A对黑 moved to 印第安纳波利斯 with a freshly minted MFA in 玩写作 in his hand. Entrepreneurial in spirit, Andy was looking for opportunities and began teaching 剧本创作 at the 印第安纳州 Writers Center (捕鲸委员会). One thing led to another, and the 剧本创作 program there has expanded significantly, and the 捕鲸委员会 now offers a full 剧本创作 curriculum (taught by others, 包括安迪).

与此同时, a community of playwrights sprang up, spurred by these educational programs, and many different kinds of creative activities have been taking place. Established in September of 2019, the 印第安纳州 玩wrights Circle is dedicated to creating community for playwrights and opportunities for them to develop their skills and get their work out.


Key activities sponsored by the IPC include:

  • 开放场景之夜: Up to six playwrights can bring in 页面s to hear them read by local actors and receive feedback. Each playwright gets about 20 minutes and the discussions are facilitated by our 现场的夜晚 Coordinator.  (Note: Writers are responsible for emailing their scripts to 里克•普卢默 到下午5点.m. on the date of the event. Scripts should be no more than 1600 words, in an MS Word file.) 现场的夜晚 are free to members. Nonmembers may have 页面s read for a $10 fee per event. Audience members are always welcome — it’s free to listen!

  • 表读取: When a play is ready to be read all the way through, a table read may be scheduled. 玛丽Karty identifies appropriate actors, 邀请IPC会员, and facilitates a discussion after the reading. Members may schedule one table read for free per year. Nonmembers pay $50 for a table read. 对于表读, nonmembers must also have the script reviewed by an IPC Officer to ensure readiness for a table read. 写信给 玛丽Karty to schedule a table read.
  • 大型小组会议每季度一次, the group convenes in a large group format for networking and some type of program of interest to playwrights. These programs are free for everyone in the community.

IPC Virtual Event Policy



Annual membership is $100 per year and includes free 现场的夜晚, one free table read per year, and a membership for the 印第安纳州 Writers Center, which entitles the member to discounted rates for 写作 classes and workshops.
