NNPN Playwright in Residence
Magic Theatre’s NNPN Playwright in Residence Christina Anderson conducts digital interviews with each of the five playwrights produced during the 2011-2012 season. From emails to video chats, Anderson uses social messaging to meet the writer and gain insight to the creative impulses behind the play. Stay tuned for more exciting playwright-to-playwright sessions throughout this season!
Her latest interview is with Linda McLean, playwright of Any Given Day. Check out the interview by clicking here on then on the Sessions With Magic’s Scribes (SMS) tab.
The National New Play Network is an alliance of leading nonprofit theaters that champion the development, production and continued life of new plays. NNPN strives to pioneer, implement and disseminate ideas and programs that revolutionize the way theaters collaborate to support new plays and playwrights.
One of the most exciting recent initiatives undertaken by NNPN is the Playwrights in Residence program, established in 2007 to support playwrights graduating from qualified MFA programs for a season-long residency at an NNPN member theater. Playwrights are nominated annually by member theaters, and those writers selected for the program receive stipends of $9,000 to learn from and engage with NNPN members throughout the year.
