Workshop with Lauren Yee | 

In April 2016, I was asked to participate in a week-long workshop event with playwright, Lauren Yee. With funding from the Dramatists Guild Fund, Tradewind Arts Asian American Artists brought Lauren Yee to Kansas City. During her visit, I served as Dramaturg for the workshop of an in-progress play of Yee's. I was also on a panel--The World of a Play (Q&A)--with Yee and other Kansas City artists. Also, Yee was gracious to join us as our Guest Speaker for the Kansas City Dramaturgy Open Office Hours Project.

 

DRAMATURG

Services | 

As a dramaturg, I can provide services ranging from script reading, script formatting, script analysis, and working directly with playwrights. I have worked with local and regional theatre and various playwrights. I can also assist with meeting submission guidelines and deadlines. My goal is to serve the playwright and the play in order to craft a clear story. I am also an active member of the Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of the Americas, since 2013.
