    This coming week I'll be making my contribution to online education. This was a workshop I taught at Kansas Thespians and was scheduled to teach in California, Florida and Ohio. But since I couldn't do it at those places, I thought I'd do it for everyone, so...

    On Thursday, March 26th at 11 AM Pacific (2 PM Eastern), I'll be presenting it on YouTube Live: The Young Playwright's Guide to Avoiding Rejection. Here's the blurb:

    Ready to learn about all the things you shouldn't do if you want them to pick your play to win a contest or get produced or published? This approximately 90-minute (yep, have your water and a snack at your side!) presentation will give you a lengthy list of land mines to avoid, compiled from years of working with young (and not so young) writers and reading their work.

    It's free and open to all (you're welcome to share the link with your students and other interested teachers/writers).
    My plan is to leave it up for two weeks after the live for those who couldn't "attend." Here's a link:

    Hope to "see" you there (and that my internet doesn't go out)!

    Cheers,
    Jonathan

    Thank you! I'm excited to share this with my Advanced Theatre students. Our next unit is for them to write and direct a scene or monologue.  This will be the perfect introduction to our unit!
