Cans n’ Drafts is a development series that focuses on the literary arts, featuring writing workshops, staged readings, and realized productions, on the stage, screen, and page.

The goals of Cans n’ Drafts are three-fold: first, to provide a venue and environment to help diverse, local writers & artists to develop their craft; second, to grow participation in and awareness of Baltimore’s literary arts community and to provide an incubator for literary talent in the city; and third, to provide opportunities for nascent writers to receive feedback from the community and to see their works developed and produced in a collaborative setting.
