So about a month ago I found out I was the recipient of the New York Stage and Film’s Founders award. Along with the great honor of getting this award, I also got a month long residency up at Vassar College, where NYSAF produces their summer series of readings, workshops and productions. Today I head up to Vassar in Poughkeepsie. I packed a bunch of magazines to read for the duration of the 1.5 hr trip, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I did not need such literary distractions because it was one of the most beautiful commutes I’ve ever been on. I’ll try to post updates on my monthlong stay here, as often as I can. I do have to write, you know.
