  • Create a home for dramatic writers that stimulates imagination
  • Develop new dramatic works to their fullest potential and feed them into the local and national markets

  • Network and enhance the visibility of the diverse community of playwrights in the Central Texas area

ScriptWorks Philosophy

ScriptWorks exists to support dramatic writers by providing opportunities at all stages in the writing process — from inception through production. SW supports the whole writer, not just an isolated project, and dedicates itself to career advancement as well as artistic growth. Committed to high artistic standards, ScriptWorks seeks to protect the writer’s integrity by encouraging playwright initiative and harnessing collective potential.
