You might be thinking...what does a dramaturg do, exactly? I can be a resource for your play, screenplay or audio story, from giving feedback on the script to providing research/otherwise assisting throughout its rehearsal and/or production process. I've done this work everywhere from one-on-one conversations with friends to podcast development at APM Studios. My curiosity and passion for the arts has also led to the festival world, interviewing artists and producing events, both remotely and in person.
The New Voices Festival
I was the Assistant Director of a literary festival for emerging writers across genres. In this leadership role, I planned festival events, managed the festival's social media team and calendar, and moderated panel discussions with our writers (read about them here!).
In 2021, as a student guide and co-dramaturg, I worked with Gina Femia and her play The Virtuous Fall of the Girls from Our Lady of Sorrows. Other past playwrights include Clare Barron, Sarah DeLappe, Heidi Schreck and Amy Herzog.
Moderating an interview and Q&A with playwright (Your Own Personal Exegesis) and novelist (Vladimir) Julia May Jonas.
The Theatre Times
For a year and some change, I worked as an Editorial Assistant with The Theatre Times, a one-of-a-kind publication for theater news. I primarily copy-edited and re-formatted articles from international sources for The Theater Times audience, a key part of their mission (read it here!). For prospective employers, a letter of reference from editor-in-chief Magda Romanska is available upon request.
The Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival
For two consecutive years, I assisted the producers of this international and virtual film festival. I researched artists and their work, conducted interviews, and worked with a team across time zones to plan and execute virtual panel discussions and talkbacks. Read more about the festival here!
I spent a lot of time in college writing papers that prove I can analyze scripts. I have further experience in script coverage of contemporary plays, short films and feature-length screenplays, available upon request.
