Formed in 2014 to enhance the Stage West's partner programs Neighborhood Play Contest and Festival of the Kid, the Playwriting Workshops are the chance for public and private school teachers to utilize our playwright instructor, Rob Bosquez Jr. Mr. Bosquez makes way for students to have a safe space to write and brainstorm ideas. Area K-12 students are actively engaged in ways to form innovative storylines in order to create their own short stories, plays, and monologues to be submitted into the annual play contest.
The fall 2021 participating schools were: Southwest High School, Carter-Riverside High School, Benbrook MS-HS, Fort Worth Country Day School, and Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts.
FWISD Playwriting Workshops are sponsored by Texas Commission on the Arts.
