I’m co-running another workshop with Kevin Kautzman about plays and the writing of plays on Saturday, May 10, in Austin, Texas. We’ve teamed up with ScriptWorks to present “Write On: A Playwriting Workshop” at the MACC Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m.
ScriptWorks is a very cool Austin group that exists to “support dramatic writers” — an excellent mission statement. The MACC (also known as the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center) is at 600 River St., Austin, TX 78701. We’ll talk a little, write a little, then talk about what we’ve written. Should be fun. Might even be informative. Cost is $15 for ScriptWorks members & students, $25 for the rest of youse.
Why Austin, you ask. Kevin returns to the city where he spent three years as a Michener Fellow at UT to dramaturg a friend’s play and to hear a reading of his own play, VASILISA MOST LOVELY. I, meanwhile, have just moved from New York City to Austin. And when I say just, I mean this week. So I’m thrilled to get to meet local dramatists and theater makers even before I’ve sampled my first brisket.
We have room for a few more, so jump in. For more scoop + reservations, write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
