The Last Frontier Theatre Conference

I will be back in Valdez, Alaska for a ninth straight year at the Last Frontier Theatre Conference, offering feedback on plays, holding a workshop with the amazing playwrights Schatzie Schaefers and Cassandra Medley, reading an excerpt from one of my more recent plays, and generally just having the amazing, rejuvenating, life-affirming experience that is the LFTC. I hope to see you there!

I will also be reading a new monologue Sugar on my Fingers at the conference - so I've just added it to the Free Monologues for Women page!
