"Not Forgotten Play Festival" and "New Worlds Festival" are two opportunities Women's Playwright Collective has been able to create for the Collective Members.
The "Not Forgotten Play Festival" is the cherry on top of a 6-7 month writing process. During this time, Collective Members meet monthly and receive feedback from their peers and mentors as they work on their 10-minute play. They then work with directors to bring their plays to life, and a hybrid staged reading is performed for audiences for two evenings.

Through Audience and Jury selection, two plays are chosen to be a part of the one-act "New Worlds Festival." The playwrights can either expand their 10-minute NWPF play or create a brand-new one. These plays are then fully realized and performed.
Women's Playwright Collective continues to look for new ways to support local playwrights and contribute to the expansion of the Staten Island Arts community and beyond.
