I have quite a bit of news to relay, and I must admit I have not been doing to best job of keeping this site up-to-date.

First, the 2017 Annual LMDA Conference: “Access, Activism & Art” had a smooth and successful run at the Ed Roberts Campus in Berkeley, California, earlier in June. Keep an eye on this page for some highlights soon to come.

In June I was also promoted to Literary Manager at Playwrights Foundation (Official announcement, along with other staffing changes, can be found here). In July, having served as the Associate Literary Manager for the selection process, I attended the 40th Bay Area Playwrights Festival and moderated a panel discussion about dramaturgy and leadership. You can read more about it on this page here.

Speaking of BAPF, I have been overseeing the submission process for next year’s festival, and our submission window closes October 1. Get your plays in NOW, by following this link.

In August, I was hired as a new Development Associate at Berkeley Repertory Theatre, and I was selected to attend the 2017 Berkshire Leadership Summit, for women aspiring to, or already in, leadership positions in the non-profit theatre world. The Summit will be hosted by WAM Theatre in Lenox, Massachusetts from October 28-29.

Playwrights Foundation is  gearing up for the 40th Bay Area Playwrights Festival next summer. Our fabulous National Reading Committee begins evaluating scripts this month, helping us identify new American plays that deserve to be shepherded onto the map.
