New York Stage & Film Vassar Retreat
COVID-19 Update: Due to restrictions brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, this program will be on hiatus until further notice.
While The Lark is a haven for playwrights in New York City, our partnership with New York Stage & Film provides writers the opportunity to participate in a one-week summer residency on the Vassar College campus, where they can generate new work and share it among a group of fellow writers, actors, collaborators, and Lark staff.
Our artists benefit enormously from an authentic retreat where they can escape to outside of the city and gain a fresh perspective on their work. The group sharing sessions allow writers to hear and support the daily efforts of their peers while the collegiate environment encourages the artists to spend time socializing and getting to know each other throughout the week and beyond.
The Selections Process
Participants are invited from The Lark’s active community of playwrights and artists, with a focus on current and former fellows and projects with upcoming development scheduled.
