WELGA – The Program

Since The Dramatists Guild of America requires a program to “validate” that I’m a “real” playwright, thought that I’d have it posted up on here. Sincere gratitude goes out to everyone that made this production possible.

A Switch in Focus

Combining my love for writing and travel has seriously changes my focus on my career as a playwright! A recent trip to Arizona has completely reignited this flame I have to share my work with others. It’s relavatory actually! Though i don’t do so much of it, I love the process of traveling. I don’t…

What fascinates me…

So now that I’ve “finished” NAO, I’ve been thinking about what to write next. The best place to start, for me, is to create a list of things that .fascinate me. These are things that make me want to explore the primal question of why? Things that fascinate me: – people with quick tempers –…

Fire

Hey! So last night, I was volunteering at the theater where I saw one of my awesomest writer friends, Carson. Very typical of writers to ask each other the following: So what are you working on?

Nervewracked over MFA… but why?

Is nervewracked even a word? Well, it is now Urban Dictionary! Nervous energy aside, I’m counting down the days, and less, to know whether or not I got accepted to the Creative Writing Program at SFSU. Mostly because it feels like my life could spin in a thousand different directions with a simple offer… or…

Esperanza Means Hope

It’s kinda funny when people tell me that they’re proud of me. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate all the kind words and I take them to heart, but it just feels a little weird – offsetting. I guess I’ve been so used to telling other people how proud I am of them because I…
