“My time at the Playwrights Colony has been the highlight of my experiences as a PARC member. Having a full week devoted entirely to developing my play under the guidance of an experienced dramaturg was truly a gift - it gave me the time and space I craved to focus on my craft and develop my script in a supportive community.”
— Shauntay Grant

“By its very existence, PARC showed me there was an information and support group for Atlantic Canadian playwrights. I have received critical evaluation of some of my early work from which I have learned a great deal. I find that PARC is a great source of encouragement.”
— John Spurway

“PARC is the only organization that east coast playwrights have to turn to for help with readings, promotion, dramaturgy and writing colonies. PARC is also the only organization in this region that is actively building a library of plays by east coast writers. The importance of PARC to the Maritimes’ cultural fabric cannot—and should not be—underestimated.”
— Jackie Torrens

“In my opinion, PARC offers an invaluable service to Artistic Directors throughout the region, in providing a conduit through which the work of Atlantic Canadian playwrights, and particularly new Atlantic Canadian playwrights, can be made accessible to theatres in the region.”
— Jennifer Overton

“PARC is essential. The organization provides essential services that support new work for the theatre. Writing for the theatre involves a complicated interface between playwright director and audience. The work off the page has to engage that process long before the first production. PARC makes that possible for playwrights in the Atlantic Region. PARC is not a sit on its bum and gab kind of organization. PARC gets creative work done.”
— E. Alex Pierce
