ICWP is dedicated to helping as many women playwrights as possible attend the tri-ennial conferences which are organised by Women Playwrights International and see such international events as stimulating international cross-cultural understanding.

Attendees of the conferences attest to life-changing encounters with a different culture. Playwrights from different countries watch and discuss readings of each other's plays, experience theatre of different forms and expand their horizons in ways that no other event could achieve.

We have a donation-based Professional Development Fund to give assistive travel grants to playwrights wishing to attend international conferences.

Please donate now to help as many women playwrights as possible attend the next conference in Sweden in 2012.
