About Write It Out!

Created by award-winning playwright Donja R. Love in 2019, Write It Out! (WIO!) provides an affirming space for people living with HIV (PLWHIV) to create their narratives in a theatrical framing artistically. By placing PLWHIV at its core, WIO! builds community for people of similar lived experiences to express themselves freely while amplifying the visibility of PLWHIV in the theatre and beyond. The intention of WIO! is to use the power of imagination and healing to radically transform the landscape of theatre and those living with HIV.
