and promote the development of new work for young audiences by:
- Supporting the work of emerging and established playwrights through a biennial national competition and process-focused workshop
- Engaging a broad representation of the TYA field in an ongoing conversation about new play development
- Creating a stronger environment for new work by fostering connections and collaborations
- Cultivating a common language of shared values about new work from the perspectives of playwrights, producers, community stakeholders, and academia.
