Playwright Community Conversations

AJT’s May 2021 3rd Playwright Community Conversation

We invite our AJT Member playwrights to join us for AJT’s Third Playwright Community Conversation (May 2021) on Thursday, May 27 at 4pm – 5:30pm Eastern (1pm – 2:30pm Pacific).

This third Playwright Community Conversation will be led by Jesse Bernstein, AJT Board Secretary and Associate Artistic Director of Theatre Ariel. The third session’s discussion will focus on exploring playwright problems “beyond writer’s block”.

With a focus on networking, we’ll all engage in conversation with different groups, each spurred by provocative questions such as: How do you handle character problems in your script? Suggestions for a great submission? Best advice for working with a director? Why or why don’t you consider yourself a ‘Jewish playwright’?

This session will put attendees in multiple different rooms throughout the gathering so that you can get to know numerous people.

Please RSVP to

We invite our AJT Member playwrights to join us for AJT’s Second Playwright Community Conversation (April 2021) on Thursday, April 22nd, 3pm – 4:30pm Eastern Time (12pm – 1:30pm Pacific Time, 1pm – 2:30pm Mountain Time, 2pm – 3:30pm Central Time, 8pm – 9:30pm London Time, 10pm – 11:30 Israel Time).

This second Playwright Community Conversation will be led by Jacqueline Goldfinger; Playwright, Dramaturg, Granada Artist-in-Residence at UC Davis. The second session’s discussion will focus on networking and promotion.

How can you authentically network with communities and leaders? What are the best ways to organize information so you can remain consistent and active? What tools and resources are out there for self-promotion? How can we rethink these terms to make them activities we enjoy?

Each month we will pick a new topic and a new leader.

The AJT Community Conversations are peer-led community gatherings designed for artists to convene and talk about strategies, solutions, and ideas for professional growth. Our goal with AJT’s Playwright Community Conversations is to collect playwrights together in a brave space where you can be open, honest, and vulnerable with one another and learn from your colleagues and peers.

RSVP by emailing if you are able to attend.
