This program aims to address geographic and economic limitations for early-career playwrights from around the world. Scratchpad playwrights receive a week-long development workshop with top professional collaborators.

International writers are now also welcome to apply to Scratchpad!

All of Scratchpad International’s programming will exist virtually. While we do anticipate that much of next season’s Fellowship and Scratchpad USA programming may also exist virtually, we do hope to be able to meet in person if and when circumstances so allow.


General application requirements:

Online application - short-answer questions (Click here to see application details)
A theatrical résumé. (PDF format. Bios will not be accepted in lieu of résumé)
A complete draft of the play you wish to develop, with your name and play title on a cover page (PDF format)
Music samples, if applicable. (Scratchpad Series only)
OPTIONAL professional reference or letter of recommendation.
