The Playwriting Workshop

LCTC’s mission is to develop and produce new LGBTQ+ works and one of the best ways to do that is to provide a place where playwrights and playwrights-to-be can bring their work; to hear it read out loud; to get supportive, constructive criticism; and to brainstorm when they feel stuck.
Are you working on a play and need some honest input that your mom and your Great Aunt Trudy just can’t give you? You should come to the workshop.

Do you have an idea that’s been bouncing around in your head that won’t let you sleep until you write it down? You should come to the Workshop.

  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.

  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
