The Delaware Young Playwrights Festival (DYPF) is a program designed to provide an outlet for DE students grades 8-12 to get the professional playwright treatment! From standards-based feedback on first-round drafts to thorough workshops with industry professionals, playwrights selected in DTC’s festival bring their ideas from page to stage.

The five playwrights of these plays were selected as finalists in the 2018-2019 Delaware Young Playwrights Festival (DYPF). The finalists will participate in a series of playwriting workshops with professional theatre artists from Delaware Theatre Company to further refine their writing and ready their works for a free public showcase performance on March 7, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. on the DTC stage.

Delaware Humanities’ Spring Vision Grant deadlines are coming up in April, and we have made a BIG change!

Come learn how to use our new Foundant online grant application, how to write a strong DH grant application, and meet and network with other DE nonprofit agencies at the same time.

The event is free, but registration is required. Register here to secure your spot.

**NOTE: This will be less paper-based than previous DH Grantwriting workshops – to get the most out of it, we encourage you to bring your own computer as we show how to navigate the new system.
