The Virgin Labfest 8 Writing Fellowship Program is a two-week mentorship program on the study and practice of dramatic writing for the stage. This is part of the Festival’s desire to train young aspiring playwrights. The Fellowship program consists of lectures, script critiquing, writing sessions and interactions with known playwrights, directors and selected actors. The fellows will also be given an access pass to all the Virgin Labfest 8 plays and selected rehearsals as part of their mentorship. The Fellowship Program will conclude in a staged reading of the fellows’ works on July 8, 2012 at the CCP Bulwagang Amado Hernandez at 6 PM. This culminating activity is open to the public, free of charge.

Other students and guests are also welcome to attend selected sessions of the Fellowship Program for a fee of P50 per session. 

The Virgin Labfest is a highly distinguished annual festival of unpublished, unstaged, untried and untested works of playwrights, directors and actors. In the past seven years, it has gained its reputation by producing provocative and outstanding ‘virgin’ plays mostly which have been recognized by the Palanca Awards for Literature.
