Playwright Slam
A Playwright Slam is not a competition. Like a Poetry Slam, it is a relaxed, informal gathering where playwrights read short sections of plays or monologues in their home language. The participants in these slams will be determined by conversations between WLPG representatives and Ibero American network representatives, and will be announced soon!
