Member Appreciation Month is winding down. Next week we'll have at least one more member post. First Person Plural will resume its regular schedule following The Writer's Center's birthday celebration with Pagan Kennedy and Carolyn Forche (with Catherine Leggett as honorary chair) on January 30th. Here's member Thomas Mason to talk about his forthcoming play:
Thanks to the guidance I received while attending 2 Playwriting workshops at The Writers Center I was able to join the Washington D.C. Playwrights Forum. Then, finally after a long development period I'm happy to announce that the Washington D.C. Playwrights Forum will sponsor a public reading of my new play "The Misfortune of Kings" at St. Mary's Armenian Church in Washington D.C. this February. If not for The Writers Center, I do not think my writing would progress to the point where another organization would have taken such a serious interest in it.
Anyone who is interested in attending feel free to come on down. The contact information is below.
