Writing social justice-based dialogue for the stage

This workshop will focus on current social issues which participants will develop working in pairs and/or small groups in a collaborative writing process. Dr. Weems will discuss the power of conversations written for the stage to educate, entertain and inspire audiences. In turn, those audiences may then pose questions, see current social issues in new ways, and perhaps even act to make the world better.

Writer in Residence Dr. Mary E. Weems is a poet, playwright, author, performer, imagination-intellect theorist and social/cultural foundations scholar. She is the author of 13 books, including Blackeyed: Plays and Monologues; Writings of Healing and Resistance: Empathy and the Imagination-Intellect; and Public Education and the Imagination-Intellect: I Speak From the Wound in My Mouth. Her five chapbooks include white, and she has written numerous poems, articles and book chapters.

Dr. Weems received a 2015 Cleveland Arts Prize for her full-length drama MEAT, and her play Another Way to Dance won Cleveland Public Theatre’s Chilcote Award. Both of her books of poems – For(e)closure and An Unmistakable Shade of Red and the Obama Chronicles – were finalists for Ohioana Book Awards. She has also been nominated for a Pushcart Prize.
