On Friday, February 24 and Saturday February 25 HowlRound will be hosting an in-person convening of about forty literary managers, dramaturgs, and playwrights and simultaneously, hosting a global, open-access, online convening through the livestreaming channel #NEWPLAY TV, watch parties, Twitter #newplay, and the HowlRound.com blog. The purpose of these dual convenings is to report on and imagine the literary office of the 21st Century.

Did anyone else check this out?

If not, you can go to the NewPlay Network site you can view the sessions in the archive - you just won't get the live twitter feed, which was a great way to communicate with folks at the conference and around the country.

Check out this manifesto for the future of the Literary Office --

LO21: a series of conversations (not actually an office)
by Adrien-Alice Hansel


The literary office of the future… isn’t actually an office. Sometimes it’s my dining room table during the kid’s first nap—just me and scripts and tea and whatever worlds those playwrights want to take me through. (Sometimes it’s a train seat where I’m reading, sometimes it’s a lobby in our building—but the chairs are always comfy and the light is always good. There are snacks nearby. Because it’s serious business, reading plays.)

Read the rest by going to HowlRound -
