welcome to the la writers center


​The LA Writers Center (LAWC) is designed to germinate and foster new works by LA based writers. 
We involve not only the writer, but a team of artists: directors, dramaturges, and actors. Provided with a safe and nurturing environment in which to read and workshop their work, writers are able to hone and sharpen their skills to a degree that would make them inherently more production-ready, and thus more likely to be produced. Bursting new talent cries out for a sort of incubator for emerging new works; a place where scripts can grow and develop into the stories that they want to be, without the pressure or expense of production. 

​Our members are as diverse as the city we live in. We believe that the future of American theatre depends upon its ability to grow and stretch; to be itself transformed by amplifying bold, new and LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC voices.
