Our work often focuses on the grotesque, the uncanny, the uncomfortable. 

From conception to production, BARELIGHT is a safe place to work on ideas, share material, and support one another.

We are currently looking for writers to engage in our "3 hour residency" program. We are looking for PLAYWRIGHTS, SCREENWRITERS, NOVELISTS, POETS, SHORT STORY WRITERS, etc. 

Past participants have used BARELIGHT to:

+ read material out loud and receive feedback

+ get help working on submissions or personal branding 

+ think tank new ideas and ventures. 


We are here for you if you need us. Please e-mail me at ellen.steves@gmail.com if you would like to be considered for a guest appearance!
