My background as a teaching-artist has provided the opportunity to work with numerous arts-education programs as a playwriting instructor and to develop a curriculum that can support various writing objectives. The focus of my online classes will introduce the importance of choosing a clear THEME, supported by a well structured PREMISE. Using skills and techniques borrowed from playwriting concepts, our ongoing classes will explore the importance of developing a clear narrative that communicates well-defined [character] objectives. These basic disciplines can be adapted to serve a range of writing needs: from essays to proposal presentations.

Wow! Amy is incredible! I felt super comfortable around her and feel I can learn so much from her. We started off finding a monologue for me to read. I read it and now plan on reading the entire script so we can continue to working on it together... I can’t wait for my next lesson!
