Every year, the Virgin Labfest Writing Fellowship Program calls for aspiring playwrights who are brave enough to learn the best from the best. Award-winning playwright Glenn Mas will once again guide the accepted fellows in their dramatic writing journey.

For two weeks, the participants will learn the fundamentals of playwriting, as well as the different aspects of theater production. They will have opportunities to interact and converse with the featured playwrights of VLF 19: Pintog, and industry leaders. 

Following the CCP’s desire to guide young aspiring playwrights in finding their artistic voices, the VLF Writing Fellowship Program will host lectures, script critiquing, writing sessions, and interactions with renowned playwrights and directors.

The fellowship program will culminate with Fellowship Showcase, to be directed by CCP artistic director Dennis N. Marasigan, on June 30, 5pm at the Bulwagang Roberto Chabet, 3/F Tanghalang Ignacio Gimenez. The showcase features stage readings of the writing fellows’ final outputs.
