WRITING CULTURE, WRITING HOPE WORKSHOP
Sunday Sept. 18, 2016- I gave my first workshop called Writing Culture, Writing Hope to Fresh Water Ministry. We went over writing a cultural monologue and using our identities to find hope in a broken world. It was a beautiful experience.
BLACK AND LATINO PLAYWRIGHTS CONFERENCE
I finally attended the Black and Latino Playwrights Conference that my dear professor Stephen Gerald told me I needed to attend years ago. It was an honor to be in the presence of the greats like Judy Tate (who taught the workshop), Eugene Lee, Regina Taylor (who I sat next to in the workshop) and Inda Craig-Galvan whose play Black Super Hero Magic Mama Stole the show.
FADE TO BLACK PLAYWRIGHTS WORKSHOP
I attended Fade To Black's Playwright Workshop taught by the Greats, Harold J. Haynes and Thomas Mcloncon! They gave me so much to think about when it comes to writing a play.
I am excited about where life is leading me and I am grateful for everyone who is coming along for the journey.
