KEEN COMPANY WRITERS LAB
The new year brings a new playwrights lab. I'm joining the Keen Company's Playwrights Lab along with Andrea Thome and Julia Jordan- two women who I know and admire. Jeremy Stoller is our dramaturge and I'm really looking forward to spending time in such great company.

Writing, snow, Maple Syrup and Cheese
I started the new year on a peaceful writers retreat in Westin Vermont writing in front of a fire alongside fellow New Dramatists Residents Ken Urban, Monet Hurst-Mendoza, and Karinne Keithley Syers. It's SO quiet up here!
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 January and February I will be teaching two workshops (2 days each) I 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
