The Virgin Labfest Writing Fellowship Program is a two-week mentorship program on the study and practice of dramatic writing for the stage. The Fellowship Program is part of the Cultural Center’s desire to train young aspiring playwrights. It consists of lectures, script critiquing, writing sessions and interactions with known playwrights, directors and selected actors.

The eight (8) fellows accepted to the program will be mentored by Glenn Sevilla Mas, a multi award-winning playwright, and will be given access to all Virgin Labfest 17 plays as part of their mentorship. The Fellowship Program will conclude in a staged reading of the fellows’ works directed by Dennis Marasigan which will take place at the CCP on June 26, 2022, 5PM and streamed online via CCP Facebook.
