We currently meet quarterly for LA FPI Gatherings (+ Micro-Reads!) at the Samuel French Bookshop, help organize LA FPI Nights at the theater (which may include Micro-Reads) and have other plans up our collective sleeves.
Thanks to all who joined for our 1st 1st Gathering in 2017, to start off Women’s March at Samuel French!
Now, join us on
We’re teaming up with Alliance of Los Angeles Playwrights to present a celebration of women theatre artists. It’s a free, public afternoon at Plummer Park in WeHo that will feature Micro-Reads from any women writer in attendance and short plays by female ALAP members, staged by a team of women directors and actors (of all genders).
If you are a female writer and would like to participate in the Micro-Reads, plan on arriving at Plummer Park at 11 am with 1 page, 400 words or less. Click Here for Micro-Reads Guidelines.
Questions? Email email@example.com
See you on March 25th for SWAN Day LA, 2017!
- Snacks and/or drinks to share (no alcohol as it’s a public park)
- 1 page of your writing to be read aloud as a Micro-Read (if you’re a female writer!)

We’ll be back at Samuel French on May 20th for our Annual Fringe Femmes Gathering before the Hollywood Fringe Festival. Thanks to Joyce Mehess and crew for opening up the bookshop’s fabulous Green Room for food, wine, connections and Micro-Reads.
We were proud to be East West Players’ Community Partner in 2016 for their production of Leah Nanako Winkler’s KENTUCKY, directed by Deena Selenow; LA FPI Night at EWP included a fab female playwright/director mixer.
And we had a blast in 2015 at our LA FPI Nights at Pasadena Playhouse, bringing together groups of up to 77 for Vanessa Claire Stewart’s STONEFACE, Diana Son’s TOP KISS & REAL WOMEN HAVE CURVES by Josefina López. Thanks so much to Seema Sueko and her crew for making these happen.
Do you have any ideas for companies or productions to approach? We want to connect with theatermakers, share our work, and fill the house to deliver the message, “It Pays to Produce Plays by Women!”
THANKS! to those of you who joined us in 2013/14 for Tactical Reads, produced by The Vagrancy, to Atwater Crossing for kicking the program off, and to Rogue Machine Theatre, Son of Semele Ensemble, The Working Stage, Park La Brea, studio/stage & Theatre Asylum for giving shelter.
Got ideas and energy to spearhead something new in terms of Events? We’re here to help you make it happen!
Check out some familiar faces at Tactical Reads and LA FPI Events…
(No, it’s not a secret! If you ask nicely, we’ll tell you all about our candle-lit – and wine-infused! – Outreach & Planning Meeting in January, 2011.) Great energy, ladies, and thanks so much to 55 Degree Wine in Atwater Village! Thanks to all of you who joined us for the 4th LA FPI Gathering in October, 2010!
And to Rogue Machine at Theatre/Theater for graciously hosting.
