September, 2015

Business of Art programming at the Lark Play Development Center, with support from Playwrights of New York, has gone deeper with two-hour workshops on a specific topic. These workshops are open to all playwrights, but they best serve those who have been through the Business of Art Boot Camp.


This September, we’ll be talking about pricing. (Insert shudder here.)


As playwrights become more entrepreneurial in crafting portfolio careers, discussions about pricing become more common. However, many creative entrepreneurs lack the basic vocabulary and economic understanding to participate in those conversations comfortably.


Four factors—cost, competition, customers, and competencies—affect the price for an entrepreneurial playwright’s work or time. This workshop will outline the science behind each factor and assist participants in developing pricing strategies to enhance their own pricing practices.


By addressing each factor relevantly in a hands-on context as part of the workshop, participants will leave armed with financial empowerment and the confidence to carry that empowerment back to their workshops, writing groups, theatre houses, and board rooms.


Join us on Thursday, September 17th for the creative conversation.
