About this author

Kimberly Batchelor Davis has been in love with books since she was a child. Who would've known that
God would bless her with the gift of writing; however he did, and she was reminded of that on September
11, 2001 after the devastating attacks on America. Kimberly's desire to write was renewed. Kimberly
fervently believes that "We live by faith, not by sight" (2 Corinthians 5:7.) It reminds us to continue to
put our faith in God instead of ourselves. She realized that something was missing from her life; it was
writing. She says: "I had to have a purpose and it wasn't just about making money, I had to give back
in some way—I just didn't know how." Since then, she has not looked back. She lives by this in creating
stories that have shared experiences and which inspire or cause people to think about situations in a
different way. Recently, she released two children's books "Rose and the Enchanted Seven" and "Look,
Daddy! There's a Bunny. Kimberly released "Escape to Paradise: Book 1, 2 and 3", the exciting, fictional
romantic trilogy book series.

Kimberly is a contributing writer for Date Night Magazine and Pandem Magazine. She has been featured
on the Brand-New Mommy and the Bougie Black Girl blogs where she discusses her bout of depression,
motherhood and writing. She has published articles with Saved magazine and Mi Estilo, an online
Hispanic magazine. Kimberly speaks professionally on issues that she's passionate about, which include
motherhood, literacy, community civic engagement and writing. Presently, she is the host of the Kim B.
Davis Show which is featured on, Apple, Spotify, Google, Stitcher and she is the Lifestyle
Editor for the Michael Van Tull Show and Community Highlights with Missionary Hattie Humphrey on
Detroit Praise Network and BlogTalk Radio. Kimberly has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science
from Wayne State University.

Grosse Pointe Theatre's Ten-Minute #Playwriting Workshop Series starts July 2021 - Registration Now Open, All Welcome #michlit Metro #Detroit

MEDIA CONTACT: Patricia A. Ellis, 313-410-3417 |

Grosse Pointe Theatre's Playwriting Workshops will teach the art of storytelling

Workshops prepare authors for the upcoming ten-minute play festival competition.

GROSSE POINTE, MI – All playwrights and those interested in becoming one are invited to participate in
Grosse Pointe Theatre's Take Ten Playwriting Workshops, which will be held virtually July – October 2021,
from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on the second Saturday of the month. Registration for the workshop series is
now open. The cost for the four-workshop series is $25. However, the workshops are complimentary for
Grosse Pointe Theatre members, so all participants are welcome to become a GPT member. Membership
information is provided on the registration page. The workshops will teach skills in storytelling through
playwriting, specifically the ten-minute play format. This year's playwriting theme is, "While You Were Out,"
similar to the message slips used in offices and the twists and turns that can happen communicating the
message. The virtual workshop format will make it easy for playwrights from around the state to participate.

By the end of the workshop series, participants should have a finished ten-minute play that they can submit
to Grosse Pointe Theatre's Take Ten, Ten-Minute Play Festival competition. The competition is open to all
playwrights. The workshop series will be a worthwhile educational exercise for newcomers, as well as those
who have experience in playwriting. Play submissions to GPT's playwriting competition will be accepted
through Dec. 31, 2021, and the winning submissions will be performed next spring.

Grosse Pointe Theatre's ten-minute play festival, now in its eighth year, is the brainchild of longtime GPT
member Mary Lou Britton who has been leading this program as its executive producer since it began.

After assuming many technical and administrative responsibilities at GPT through the years, Britton honed-
in on her writing skills creating ten-minute plays. She has written several short plays since. Having spent her
career as an executive communicator and editor, and now playwright, Britton is excited to share her skills
and enthusiasm for playwriting with other playwrights and newcomers. Britton will team-teach the
workshops with Stella Woitulewicz, an actor and theatre buff who got hooked on comedy writing at Second
City Detroit. She has written and co-directed numerous short plays since.

"Playwriting has grown in popularity through the years and it's exciting to see someone take a story idea
and create a plot, characters and a setting that audiences can relate too," said Britton. "Playwriting opens
up another dimension to storytelling, connecting each character's experiences in a believable and
entertaining way – in this case, all in ten minutes! We look forward to working with this year's participants
and seeing their creative process develop into a finished ten-minute play."

About book
Urbantasm is a magical teen noir serial novel inspired by the author's experiences growing up in and around Flint, Michigan.

Thirteen-year-old John Bridge's plans include hooking up with an eighth-grade girl and becoming one of the most popular kids at Radcliffe Junior High, but when he steals a pair of strange blue sunglasses from a homeless person, it drops him into the middle of a gang war overwhelming the once-great Rust Belt town of Akawe.

John doesn't understand why the sunglasses are such a big deal, but everything, it seems, is on the table. Perhaps he accidentally offended the Chalks, a white supremacist gang trying to expand across the city. Maybe the feud involves his friend Selby, whose father died under mysterious circumstances. It could even have something to do with O-Sugar, a homegrown drug with the seeming ability to distort space. On the night before school began, a group of teenagers took O-Sugar and leapt to their deaths from an abandoned hospital.

John struggles to untangle these mysteries while adjusting to his new school, even as his parents confront looming unemployment and as his city fractures and burns.
