Dramatist To Dramatist
Dramatist to Dramatist is a workshop hosted by St. Columb’s Episcopal Church and The Center Players’ Playwright in Residence, Katrina Byrd. The workshop focuses on the theme of play writing but has many tips that are helpful to all writers. Topics to be discussed during the workshop include, play development, editing, and finding time to write. Dramatist to Dramatist also gives playwrights the opportunity to network and get information on other resources available to them.
Katrina Byrd is The Center Players’ Playwright in Residence for the 2010-2011 season. She has written several short plays. One of her short plays, Dinsmoor’s Last Stand, was written at the request of The Center Players Community Theatre. Dinsmoor’s Last Stand was performed at a ceremony hosted by the City of Ridgeland to commemorate Silas Dinsmoor, a Choctaw Indian Agent. Several of Katrina’s ten minute plays have appeared in Fondren Theatre Workshop’s Ten Minute Play Projects. Katrina has also received three Artist Minigrants from the Mississippi Arts commission. Her last Artist Minigrant helped to fund a staged reading of Death Rattle, a full length play that was started at a writing workshop hosted by the SonEdna Foundation.
