PLAYWRITING RESIDENCIES

OVERVIEW

Since 2002, the William Inge Center for the Arts has hosted outstanding playwrights as part of the Inge House Playwrights-in-Residence. To date, 49 playwrights have lived in Independence for extended residencies at the William Inge Family Home. They each received a play development workshop of one of their scripts and distraction-free time for writing.

APPLYING FOR A RESIDENCY

The Inge Center is gratified by the interest from professional playwrights across the nation. As we have already identified a large number of highly qualified, potential playwrights, we are sorry to report that we are not accepting applications at this time.
