Writers Reading Series – These are held frequently throughout the year.  WIT members are given preference for casting, while non-members may be cast as needed.  The format may follow a reading or staged reading of the script with a discussion of the theatrical piece following.  Scripts are picked in advance.  WIT is not a producing organization per se, but we strive to provide educational and developmental opportunities for both male/female writers to advance their work in readings or related programs.  Efforts are included to allow active WIT members, beginning or advanced playwrights, to expand their work.
