WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN THE MONTANA PLAYWRIGHTS NETWORK?

WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN THE MONTANA PLAYWRIGHTS NETWORK?

Although playwriting and new plays are our primary interest, the Montana Playwrights Network is not just for playwrights. We also welcome storytellers and writers who create or perform stories, write memoirs, essays, and poetry and who wish to strengthen their creative works by learning and practicing playwriting techniques. We also serve teachers who work with students of all ages in developing and strengthening writing and reading skills within the schools and general population through stories, storytelling and playwriting.

“Most of the use of story is the fundamental instrument of thought. Rational capacities depend on it. It is our chief means of looking into the future, of predicting, planning, and of explaining … most of our experience, our knowledge; our thinking is organized as stories.”

- Mark Turner, author of The Literary Mind
