2014 Playwriting Wrap-Up

Playing catch up 6 months into 2015!  Fingers crossed that this year will be just as productive.
  apatSwag Well, 2014 turned out to be a pretty good year! This year I had 8 One-Act Plays produced (1 play produced by 2 different companies 1 week apart from each other!), 2 Full-length One-Acts stage read, 1 Film shown (22 screenings in 8 different countries), and 6 short plays stage read (shared) with my Sinag-tala family 🙂 I'm heading into my last semester of my 3-year MFA Creative Writing (Playwriting) Program and San Francisco State University. All I have left is a production class and to write my Thesis Play! I'm already planning more plays to write and produce in 2015 and the goal is to submit to more places around the country, especially in L.A. where I can finally see some of my work performed with my family there. NYC and others would be cool too! Cheers to a 2014 and looking forward to the New Year!!!
