The evening
Entry to the St Louis Writers' Group events is always free. Our meetings are organized but informal events, held upstairs in a pub. Drinks and food can be ordered downstairs, which they will bring up for you. We encourage everyone to come on time for 6:30 p.m. so as not to miss the start.

We usually meet on the first Monday of the month for the reading of a completed script, and the third Monday of the month for either a similar reading, or a workshop of short pieces, partly completed works, ideas and other material. Sometimes there are special events - see the calendar.

Anyone can have plays read at the St Louis Writers' Group, there are no pre-qualifications, academic or otherwise, and no membership. We can help find actors, or feel free to arrange your own. We do need to know in advance, and if you are a first time playwright we suggest a workshop evening. If you simply show up with a script, we'll do our best, but it might not be possible to fit it in without warning.

If you are an actor and would be willing to read for us please let us know. Most events require readers. Feel free to pass this on to anyone who might be interested.

We are always happy to see people who just want to show up and listen. We have a moderated discussion of the work afterwards, in which anyone can take part (to help the playwright develop the work), but there are not usually any forms or surveys. Plays Note that STLWG does not edit or censor scripts, so the content may occasionally be controversial or use adult language, though we do not condone anything that is deliberately inflammatory. If you are submitting material that might fall into this category please let us know.

The St. Louis Writers' Group is dedicated to the development of area playwrights, screenwriters and writers of musical theater through reading, discussions and workshops.  For more information about this reading or organization or for information about submitting a work for a reading, checkout our web site, www.stlwritersgroup.com, Phone  314-865-1296, or send an e-mail to farwemar@aol.com
