I hope you and yours are safe and well. Like so many families, things have been busy on my end as my family gets adjusted to virtual learning and working. I miss all of you and the wonderful creative spaces we created together!
I am writing to invite you to a series of events. This month, I will be moderating three conversations (9/27, 9/30 and 10/4 at 7pm) through the Howard County Poetry and Literature Society and Howard Community College's Art Collective on diversity and equity in the arts community. The conversations will be broadcast live on Facebook. Like the Arts Collective @HCC on Facebook to watch on Facebook Live at the time of the event! Each event will bring together various distinguished writers, actors, visual artists, artistic designers, and administrators connected by their present or past work with AC and HCPLS in our community. These powerful conversations, informed directly by current events, will question, examine, and offer strategies for socially responsible work and anti-racist practices in the arts. I hope to see you there! See below for more details.
I have few fun updates on the writing front too! My new one-act play, How to Make Banana Pudding, will be featured in the Brown Sugar Bake-Off Play Festival sponsored by Two Strikes Theater Collective and the Strand Theater on October 17. Learn more details here. Lastly, I am now writing television reviews for Parade magazine! Read my latest reviews here.
I hope to see you around these virtual parts! Again, please stay safe.
