I’ll host a series of Sunday afternoons at my home in which we read classic scenes or whole plays aloud, using scripts that I’ll provide. No theatrical experience or memorization is necessary, just a willingness to read a role and share your thoughts afterward. I hope to offer several such afternoons, but you need not commit to every date. If you’re interested in being part of this little repertory company for one session or several, please contact me by email. I’ll send details as the group takes shape.
Location: Hasbrouck Heights, NJ
January through April 2023
Sundays, 2:00-4:00 pm; dates to be announced
Montclair Adult School Workshops
The Geography of Memoir
Places have rich tales to tell. We’ll explore various personal geographies—rooms, towns, states, countries, climates—as catalysts for our life stories. All writing is done in class. Optional reading includes brief examples from top memoirists.
Three Tuesdays on Zoom: Jan 31, Feb 7 & 14, 2023, 10:30am-12:30pm
Writing from Art
Paintings can inspire and deepen our creative writing in unexpected ways. We’ll write in class, using specific works of art (but not photos) instead of words as prompts. All genres are welcome. No readings, no preparation; just bring a love of art and a desire to write and offer constructive feedback.
Thursday, March 9, 1:00-3:00pm
In person; location to be announced
Note: Adult School 2023 dates are subject to change. Please check back in January for confirmation and registration details.
