I teach playwriting, collaboration, workshops on interdisciplinary performance and serve as a mentor to individual playwrights and groups looking to devise their own work. My workshops incorporate examples from my own work and process as well as in-class exercises and writing games. I’ve taught in universities, writing centers, theaters and high schools, and can create a workshop or series of workshops tailored to your needs. See below for a list some of the places I’ve taught in the past.
