THE Artist Training Division of the Cultural Center of the Philippines is pleased to announce the fellows accepted to the Virgin Labfest 2020 Writing Fellowship Program which will take place online on June 16 - 28, 2020:

The Virgin Labfest Writing Fellowship Program is a two-week mentorship program on the study and practice of dramatic writing for the stage.  The Fellowship Program is part of the Cultural Center’s desire to train young aspiring playwrights. It consists of lectures, script critiquing, writing sessions and interactions with known playwrights, directors and selected actors.

Due to the limitations of online mentoring, only six (6) applications, instead of ten (10), could be accommodated this year. The fellows accepted to the Program will be mentored online by Glenn Sevilla Mas, a multi award-winning playwright, and will be given access to all Virgin Labfest 2020 plays as part of their mentorship. The Fellowship Program will conclude in an online staged reading of the fellows’ works directed by Dennis Marasigan on June 28, 2020 at 2PM and 5PM.

The Virgin Labfest 2020 Writing Fellowship Program is a project of the CCP Artist Training Division of the Arts Education Department.
