Howlround.org: Diversifying Creative Writing Programs with Playwriting
EmersonWRITES: This program now goes by a different name, but I taught high school students playwriting most Saturday mornings for three years. The curriculum branched from Aristotle’s six elements of drama, and culminated in each student writing a ten-minute play.
“Surreal Gist”: Gallery 263, Cambridge, MA, October 2013. I wrote and directed this 15-minute play based on the real-life breakup of artists Lee Miller and Man Ray in Paris in 1929.
The Department of Accidents: Four of my poems are included my writing group’s self-published anthology, and I also designed the interior in InDesign. These handsome volumes are available for any donation at the website.
High Volumes radio show
High Volumes is “an online radio show with a literary edge” that I produced and hosted from November 2009 to May 2012 to feature poetry and fiction read aloud, conversations with authors and publishers, and music to round out the listening experience. Episodes are no longer available online. Please contact me for more information or to request episodes.
