Seattle Repertory Theatre has announced the five Northwest writers selected to take part in the theatre's inaugural Writers Group. Emily Conbere, Vincent Delaney, Al Frank, Elizabeth Heffron, and Stephanie Timm will form the first group for this two-year initiative.

The Writers Group is a forum for playwrights to challenge, encourage and motivate each other through an extended conversation about their work. The five selected will bring vastly different styles and voices, with each artist currently at different stages in their careers and development. They will present up to one staged reading of a full-length play each year of the program.
