New York City Playwrights posts production opportunities available to playwrights in the New York City area. Some opportunities are open to regional, national, or international writers. This blog doesn’t cater exclusively to young playwrights, but some of the competitions they post are all-ages, and for YPI alumni asking themselves “What’s next?,” it’s definitely a great resource to have!
