The Vagrancy Writers’ Group is a cohort tasked with the goal of developing full-length plays for production based on a given theme. The Vagrancy annually selects a core group of five playwrights representing the diverse perspectives and voices of Michigan.
We are especially interested in stories told by women, BIPOC, LGBTQIA+ and artists with disabilities.

Beginning each fall, the writers meet regularly throughout the year as they craft their plays. The Vagrancy hosts two mid-year development workshops wherein the plays are explored with actors and a director in a rehearsal setting with the playwright.
The process culminates each summer with BLOSSOMING, a staged reading festival of the new plays, including moderated talkbacks with the audience.
