Acclaimed playwright and dramaturg Jacqueline Goldfinger has founded a new ongoing resource for theater-makers and theater lovers called Page By Page. It's perfect for anyone looking to engage more deeply with new work in the theater either as a practitioner or an enthusiast. We are the most popular with playwrights and other lead theater-makers (like dramaturgs and directors), however, everyone interested in new work is welcome!

We will help you advance your artistic career, hobby or passion for the theater as well as provide a deeper connection with the national community. I often query my friends from around the country (agents, producers, etc.) to get the most up-to-date and practical advice on how to succeed for my subscribers.

Our services include access to submission opportunities, private artist retreats, a monthly magazine, a writing partner match program, and so much more. Read about our "tiers" of services on this page.

In return, you will be supporting a working playwright and giving her the resources to spend more time writing and less time working a traditional day job.

Goldfinger is an Adjunct Professor in the MFA Theater Arts Program at Temple University. You can read more about her work:  www.jacquelinegoldfinger.com
Tiers
The Collaborator-Theater Lover
$4 or more per month

You will receive a slimmed down version of the monthly Magazine without the writing prompts and writing advice which is playwright-centric.


You will have the option to join our private Page by Page Facebook community where I will post additional resources, articles, submission opportunities, etc that don't fit into the monthly magazine. You can also post notices about your readings and productions, so that Page by Page members in your area can come and out support your work. 


You will have access to our monthly video series "3 Tips in 30 Seconds" which highlights what three actions theater artists can take that month to help their career based on where we are in the theater season (September-June) calendar.


During Philadelphia Theatre Week 2020, we will offer two events (one online event and one in-person event in Philadelphia) free to our subscribers.


You will be eligible to apply for our two in-person Artist Retreats each year. At the Retreats, we bring in master teaching artists to support your work (if you so wish) or you can simply use the time away from home to create. *The Artist Retreats do have an additional fee associated with them. Information will be available at the time of application.


We also occasionally partner with other theater and creative organizations to provide discounts to Page By Page subscribers for classes and materials.


And you will be helping support a playwright and her family!

Goals
176 of 200 patrons
In late 2018, when I created Page By Page, I wanted to provide the resource that I wish someone had curated for me as a theater artist. A resource that is easy to access, honest, and helped me grow. A place to find community, both online and off, that is encouraging, supportive, but also rigorous. Our goals at Page By Page are to help you live your best theater life. Thanks for checking out Page By Page.
