Workshops

Workshop production of an original play for high school students.

I lead a variety of writing workshops – from two hour inspirational and intensive “boot camps” to ten week sessions which focus on the craft of revising and shaping written work. While I give particular attention to writing for the stage and screen, I also encourage writing in poetry, prose and personal essay.

I believe that everyone has a strong, unique voice. We are all born with creative genius and writing is an art form that belongs to all people, regardless of economic class or educational level.

Most importantly, I believe a writer is someone who writes – and that in my workshops, regardless of age, we are colleagues in pursuit of the expression of our creativity.

As a visiting artist, I have taught in a variety of locations - grade school, high school and college age levels. I’d be delighted to speak with you about bringing one of my dynamic, fun and interactive educational workshops to your location.

I was Adjunct Professor of Playwriting at Fairfield University, Fairfield, CT for seven years and also taught at the Educational Center for the Arts in New Haven, where I frequently return as a visiting guest artist.
