Jersey Shorts is a developmental program for prose writers. In a manner similar to our New Play Development process, professional actors and directors work with prose fiction authors to develop short stories in progress. Public performances consist of professional actors rendering a reading of the work.
The project is currently in its pilot phase as a partnership with the MFA writing program at William Paterson University. Graduating writers receive a reading as part of their final product.
Plans are to extend the project to include New Jersey-based prose writers in the near future.
