Louisville Report, Upcoming show in Connecticut, and.....(??!!) guess what?

Howdy all-

Wow!  It was a very busy time in Louisville.  I was attending my second residency working towards an MFA in Writing from Spalding University.  My focus is Playwriting with a side journey into Screenwriting for the next six months.

The Spalding MFA program is a beast!  Both in prestige and expectations of the students.  Being a brief residency program, I am on campus for 10 days twice a year, and the rest of the time I'm writing ferociously and delivering packets periodically to a mentor who reads them and cracks the whip again!

It's great!  Once again, I came back from the residency even MORE impressed with the program, and still LESS impressed with myself.  Screenwriting is probably the most form and format conscious medium I have ever worked in, even more that songwriting.  And still, it can be so incredibly creative.  I am very excited by all I have to learn.

NOTE - Those of you in the Northeast US, please remember my show in Middletown, CT, on June 20.  See the SHOWS page for details.

AND - If you are in the Middle Tennessee area, start thinking about what you are doing on Saturday, Sept 20.  

This year, the Proto Pulp Book Show (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Proto-Pulp-book-show/197808956958002) will include an afternoon of Ten Minute Plays that I am producing with the help of Nashville director, Tom Angland.  We are going to do four original 10 minute plays in regular rotation during the afternoon on an outdoor stage in the back of the art shop complex at 1108 Woodland Street, in East Nashville.  This is going to be exciting!

See you down the road!
