The Playwrights Center in Minneapolis 

I'm thrilled to begin a three-year tenure as a Core Writer at The Playwrights Center in Minneapolis. 


I'm writing a brand new play as part of the 2017 Keen Company Playwrights Lab along with Andrea Thome and Julia Jordan- two women I know and admire. Jeremy Stoller is our dramaturge.

For several years now I have been teaching workshops and working privately to help people write their artist statements, mission statements, bios and grad school applications.  I've helped writers get over that rejection hump and start getting accepted into places like Carnegie Mellon MFA program, the Playwrights Realm Fellowship, EST Youngblood, The McKnight Fellowship among others. But more importantly, writing about what they do and who they are no longer feels like an excruciating chore.   I've never advertised my services, but after so much positive feedback, I'm going public. 

This May I will be teaching my two day workshop and will also continue to coach privately during this busy application time.  Please email me if you are interested in getting on the list for the class or would like to work 1:1.  You may contact me at stefzad@gmail.com
