The Writers’ Bloc

keep calm and write

We are currently in the process of redesigning our Writers’ Bloc workshop to better serve the needs of the writers in our community. If you’re a writer who’d like to be involved, we would love to hear from you–email to tell us your thoughts.

Already have a complete script? You can submit it to be considered for a staged reading! Learn more.


“It has been beyond wonderful working with the folks at 5th Wall. I have had the opportunity to participate in both their Rough Draft Readings and Writers Bloc programs, and the experience has been invaluable. They provide an environment that is safe and nurturing for playwrights to hone and expand their craft. It is truly a joy to bring them new material because I know I will get the guidance and inspiration to develop it into a producible piece.”

-Richard Ridley, local playwright and novelist
