Elisabeth is currently the Head of Playwriting for CreateHER, a free program for female-identifying high school students in New York City, who are interested in playwriting and producing. CreateHER classes are held on Sundays from 9:30am-1pm in midtown Manhattan.
Through this program, students are given the technical and creative tools to take their creativity from an idea to reality. We provide a graduate-level playwriting course, and we regularly host guest speakers who are leaders in the industry: from Tony-winning producers, to groundbreaking playwrights, dramaturgs, and casting directors. By the end of the semester, the students write, produce, and present a short play of their own.
Our application window is open now until Sunday, December 1, 2019, and can be accessed here. We encourage students of all experience levels to apply.
CreateHER is the official education program of SheNYC, a non-profit organization dedicated to women in the arts. Please check out our website or Facebook page.
