The PWC Board of Directors is pleased to announce that esteemed playwright, teacher, actor, and all-around renaissance man Bruce Graham will be returning to teach a master class at the 2019 Philadelphia Writers’ Conference.

Bruce began his career as a playwright at the Philadelphia Festival Theatre for New Plays (PFT) in 1984, where he also served as playwright-in-residence and later as Artistic Director. He has received grants from the Pew Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, and was a past winner of the Princess Grace Foundation Statuette. He won the Rosenthal Prize for Coyote On A Fence. He has won consecutive Barrymore Awards for Best New Play (Something Intangible and Any Given Monday) and Chicago’s Jefferson Award for The Outgoing Tide. He is the first American playwright to be invited two years in a row to the Galway Arts Festival, which produced The Outgoing Tide and Stella and Lou.

Bruce will teach a two-day “master” class on playwriting.  Master classes are geared towards more advanced students, and registration will be limited to fifteen students.

The 2019 Philadelphia Writers’ Conference will be held on June 7 – 9, 2019 at the Wyndham Hotel at 4th and Arch Street in Old City  Philadelphia.  Registration for the conference will open in early 2019.
