We are thrilled to announce the return of our Creative Workshop series this fall.
Join us on at one or all of our Creative Workshops focused on creative development and the writing process. The workshops are intended for those new to writing for the stage, but veteran Fringe participants will also gain new tips, strategies, and insights into the creative process. The Creative Workshops directly complement the spring 2018 Workshops and Town Halls, which focus on marketing, budgeting, and registration. Admission to all the workshops is free.
Each workshop will include a small panel of veteran Fringe writers, who will share their experiences and answer questions. There will be two sessions on Saturday and one on Sunday, all hosted at Studio/Stage.
Registration for the workshops is highly recommended. Seats fill up quickly. To reserve your space, register by clicking the links above.

The second-to-last installment in our intern series comes from Effy Yizhou Yang, HFF17 Set Design Intern.
I consider myself really lucky to be able to participate in the Fringe internship program. There are not many programs out there that has specific intern categories, such as Fringe TV, Volunteering Organization, Set Design, etc. Those specific categories allow the interns to focus on tasks that they are actually interested in and develop skills accordingly.
For example, not only was I helping in the execution and installment of the design, I was also encouraged to participate in the design process from the very beginning. The openness to ideas and collaborative working environment surprised me. However after meeting all the staff member in our intern luncheon, I realized this harmonious working relationship exists everywhere within the fringe team. Everyone works together towards one goal, which is to present a memorable and special theatre festival for participants.
My advice for next year’s interns is to think like you are the director of the fringe team, no matter what position you are on; to think about how you can make this year’s fringe better. You might just have the next great idea to help fringe to be better.
