Interim Writers is a new collective dedicated to fostering and developing Boston Playwrights. To this end, we hold bimonthly readings where invited playwrights present a piece in any stage of development in order to obtain feedback and hear their ideas out loud. Interim Writers is a resource for writers to have their plays workshopped in a supportive, constructive environment, and for Boston theater companies to come discover new plays and voices.
