Assoc. Professor of Creative Writing

I believe you learn to write by writing.  And the best way to learn the craft of playwriting, I have found, is to go through a developmental process that includes working with a director and actors.  To that end, I produce an annual new 10-minute play festival -- Fringe Fest.  Each of my Introduction to Playwriting students is placed with a director and a cast.  They revise for a week, as rehearsals are taking place.  At the end of that time, each play receives a staged reading in front of an audience.  

Below are images from each year.  I won't attempt to label the photos with names, but these give a representative sampling from each year.
