|We here at March Forth love good stories, and without writers… well we don’t have many good stories, now do we? That is why every summer we provide writers with a chance to have their work read and shared informally in an environment that promotes collaboration, thoughtful feedback and the building of our artistic community.
For four Mondays every summer we gather writers, actors, directors and dramaturgs to read a new play along with the playwright. We discuss what we’ve just experienced, and address any questions or concerns the playwright might have. This is a perfect opportunity for early-career writers or seasoned veterans looking for a supportive arena to try out their newest venture!
Summer Salon Guidelines

Play must be complete at the time of submission. Revisions to submitted scripts are allowed, however incomplete texts will not be considered.
