Announces request for submissions

2nd Year GFT Writes

Playwriting Intensive

(via GFT)Ground Floor Theatre is accepting applications for the 2025 GFT Writes cohort. For this cycle, we are considering drafted plays that fall within our mission of supporting work that focuses on underrepresented communities. GFT Writes will meet one to two Sundays a month over twelve months as each playwright develops their play. The process will culminate in a workshop and public reading in September 2025. Playwrights will receive a $600 stipend for their participation in GFT Writes.


To apply, email:

1. The current draft of the play you’d like to develop in the cohort. 

2. Your theatre resume which includes your address. If your play has had any workshop or production history, please include that here. 

3. A one to two page statement addressing the following: what excites you about your play; what questions you will explore as you revise your play; how your play fits into your body of work. 


This will be a blinded review process, final selection will be unblinded. Do not include your name or contact information in either your play or statement.


GFT Writes will meet starting in October 2024, with workshops and public readings taking place the following September. Playwrights must be based in the Austin area.
