The Port City Playwrights’ Project is a community of playwrights and screenwriters in the greater Wilmington, NC, area that supports members at all levels of development, giving them an opportunity to hone their craft in order to create high-quality work. To that end, we offer a supportive atmosphere in which playwrights and screenwriters:

• have their works read and discussed
• share opportunities for submissions to theatres, producers, and publishers
• hear expertise from guest speakers on playwriting and screenwriting
• become eligible for works to be selected for staged readings and full productions 
• belong to a guild that actively encourages producting organizations to take on award-worthy scripts created locally


next meeting will be held on Saturday, Dec. 16 @ 11 a.m. at the Myrtle Grove Library, 5155 S College Rd., Wilmington. Newcomers at any stage of experience are always welcomed! Direct questions to portcityplaywrightsproject@gmail.com.
