01/14/2009: "Opportunities for County Writers"

Regardless of writing experience, everyone is encouraged to attend a discussion on the Friday Harbor Centennial Plays Project and related workshops for the 2010 Islands Playwrights Festival.

The time is Thursday, January 15th, 5:15PM to 6:30PM at the San Juan Island Library Meeting Room and is sponsored by the San Juan County Dramatists group. The SJC Dramatists support county writers in creating new works for the stage or other mediums.

Merritt Olsen, executive director of San Juan Community Theatre and the theatre staff have pulled together full grant funding to support a development process of new works from concept to performance at the 2010 County Playwrights Festival.

To support this process The Roadside Theater Company will be coming to the San Juan Islands to perform and share their knowledge of community story and play development. Roadside Theater is currently creating a body of drama based on the lives of Appalachian people and collaborating with others nationally who are dramatizing their local life and history.

Merritt will also discuss play writing workshops by renowned author and playwright Mark Dunn scheduled during the 2009 Playwrights Festival next month. Based on his love of literature and drama, Mark Dunn will provide stimulating and fulfilling workshops for local dramatic writers
