The Festival Is Now. . .Open for Applications

The time has come; the 2017 New Works Festival application is now open!

The Admissions Committee for the 2017 Cohen New Works Festival is hosting an Application Workshop on Wednesday, September 14 at 5 p.m. in Winship 1.134. Any and all questions will be answered at the workshop. After a Q & A, committee members have some fun exercises planned to get your creative juices flowing.

If you’re not applying to the NWF but want to collaborate with someone or join a project, there is a NWF Talent Search reddit page where fellow festival participants are looking for others to work with.
