Are you performing one of my plays? I am happy to offer visits (either in-person or via Skype or Google Video chat) to student groups of any age who are currently producing any of my plays free of charge. A great opportunity for the cast and crew to ask questions about the play and their individual characters during the rehearsal process!

I’ll come see the show! While my schedule and distance won’t let me attend everything, I also love to attend productions or rehearsals whenever possible and am more than happy to stay after for talkbacks or other Q&A sessions either with the audience as a whole or just your cast and crew.

Studying one of my plays in your class? I’m happy to visit or video chat with your class to discuss the script for no charge provided your class has purchased copies of the play they are studying.

Interested in having me talk to the students about theatre, writing or getting started in playwrighting either virtually or in-person? You can see a sample of the workshops and talks I can offer in the Workshops and Classes option.

Workshops and Talks

I am available for a variety of workshops and talks for libraries, writing groups and schools about writing craft, publishing, productivity and more either in person, online or via video chat (Skype, Google, etc) for a fee or a bulk purchase of one of my books. For a full list of the talks and workshops I’m currently offering, please see this list.

In my capacity as a volunteer with NaNoWriMo, I can also offer introductions to National Novel Writing Month and other tangential events free of charge as availability allows for libraries and organizations registered as official Come Write In locations affiliated with the Northeast New Jersey region (of which I am the chapter head) and participating in the annual November activities. Just keep in mind that autumn is the busiest time of year for me and the earlier you contact me, the better your chance that I’m still available.
