Script Development & Writing Workshops: the Next Frontier
Hello, all! I freely and humbly admit that it has been entirely too long since I last posted an update. My apologies to all of you who have been waiting to hear from me. The good news is that a lot has happened since my last post. I’ve successfully completed the first term of my MA program here in London, and I’ve moved into a lovely little flat in Kilburn. For those of you who don’t know, Kilburn is home to The Tricycle Theater and is located only three tube stops away from my school, which means I can sleep a bit later in the mornings (always a good thing).
Since my arrival in London in October I’ve seen lots of shows, good and bad, and I’ve started working on some exciting new projects. What projects? Well, I’m glad you asked!
As many of you may know, I am an interdisciplinary artist and educator. What you may not know is that I’m also a workshop facilitator. That’s right! I’m currently leading a writing workshop series for my MA program. The participants of this series will be led in writing exercises and feedback sessions by myself and special guest artists. This series will culminate in a writer’s showcase in the early summer. I’m very excited about this endeavor, and I plan to start offering a workshop series outside of Central School of Speech & Drama in the spring, so be on the lookout for information on how to enroll!
Additionally, I’m now offering my services as a script development consultant for new work. Right now I’m consulting on two exciting productions on different sides of the globe. Yours could be next. If you’re interested in working with me, shoot me a message. I’m sure we can work something out.
As if that weren’t enough, I’m also serving as the Development Manager & Deputy Stage Manager for the British Premiere of Wajdi Mouawad’s SHORE, which will be directed by Anne Khazam and opens at Riverside Studios here in London in March.
All in all, it’s been quite a busy and productive winter for me. I hope it’s been good for you, too.
