Fresh Ink is the annual reading series of work by the Primary Stages Dorothy Strelsin New American Writers Group writers. The group meets on a weekly basis from September through April and the writers have the opportunity to discuss their current projects and offer each other constructive feedback in a supportive environment. The goal for each writer is to complete a new play by the end of the spring session, and Fresh Ink is the result of their efforts.
