Workshop + 12 Day Festival (July 8 to 19)

Extend your stay, and intensify.... In addition to the workshop with xx, join the Southampton International Theatre Festival, extend your stay through July 20 and get two readings of your play (or work in progress). 

The first reading – in a closed setting, we provide the actors and one of Stony Brook Southampton’s theatre faculty to give you feedback.  Take your notes and spend the next few days editing for the second reading.

The second reading – The actors return for an in-house presentation of works in development open to the Theatre Festival and Southampton Writers Conference attendees.    

Residency/Festival (July 8 to 19)

Wish you had a place to get away from the distractions of your everyday life and finally finish that script?  Now you do.  Spend 12 days in the seclusion of your own room hammering away at your laptop. When you need a break, some inspiration, or some conversation with other writers, the Southampton International Theatre Festival is there for the taking.   Plus have your work-in-progress read twice during your stay. 

The first reading – in a closed setting, we provide the actors and one of Stony Brook Southampton’s theatre faculty to give you feedback.  Take your notes and spend the next few days editing for the second reading.

The second reading – The actors return for an in-house presentation of works in development open to the Theatre Festival and Southampton Writers Conference attendees.    

Catch readings and craft talks with some of the best writers in the country, converse with participants about the pangs of being a writer, then head to your room and crank out some more pages.  As part of the residency program, you also have access to all the Southampton Writers Conference has to offer, except for morning workshops. 

To make the most of your time with us, you are required to reserve a single dorm room.  Room cost is not included.         

Listener's Pass (July 8 to 19)

Love theatre but not writing?  Get access all the play readings, events and receptions.  Plus access to all  that the Southampton Writers Conference has offer and you don't have to pick up a single pen (though you'll probably want to). Listener's Pass attendees do not get access to workshops or closed play readings.
