The Lear Project

By now, you’ve all probably seen the Twitter and Facebook posts about how Shakespeare wrote King Lear while hiding out from the Plague. With the theaters closed, England’s greatest writer was able to focus on his craft and create a new masterpiece for us to enjoy four hundred years later.

With the theaters (and bars and schools) closed, we launched The Lear Project, a free online writing group. The Lear Project supports writers as they make work, providing accountability and community in a time of chaos.

However, we didn’t want to stop there! We want to share the same resources and assignments provided to project participants with YOU. Check back soon to this web site, as well as the Artist Newsletter, for updates, resources, and more.
