Back by popular demand! Deborah has been invited back to the San Miguel Writer’s Conference in San Miguel Allende Mexico in February 2015 to teach to teach three playwriting workshops. The conference is an annual event that brings together writers from all over Canada, Mexico and the US. Last year, Deborah taught Plotting Along (a staple of the Goddard MFAW residency) and other dramatic writing workshops in a pilot project that was designed to reach dramatic writers and the theatre community. Based on the enthusiastic response to Deborah’s workshops, dramatic writing will be offered at the conference for a second year.
