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 | https://www.gpt.org/


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.

🌟 New Episode #32: Purposeful + Practical PR = Rockstar Publicity, with Yetunde Shorters w/@pamperry

Pam Perry PR
Podcast Episode 32

Do you know what you've been put on this planet to do, but you don't know what to do next? Do you want to make a profit while standing tall in your purpose? Then you need to meet this week's guest, Yetunde Shorters.

An award-winning international publicist, entrepreneur, and author, Yetunde Shorters has spent 20 years getting publicity features for musicians, artists, and solopreneurs all over the world.

Now she's helping women entrepreneurs get crystal clear on their life's purpose, and with that clarity, activate it for impact and income.

If you have knowledge and know-how and are tired of being a best-kept secret, then listen in and level up while Yetunde and I talk about: the childhood adventures that reveal our true purpose, a single question to uncover your target audience, proof that what you offer isn't for everybody, why big engagement is worth more than a big following, what to do before launching your book, what personal branding is really about … and more!

Highlights From This Episode:

  • What the Revenge of the Nerds movie sparked young Yetunde to do
  • How she switched from pre-law to PR in just 30 seconds 😉
  • Not sure about your target audience? This one question will make it crystal clear…
  • Perfect Example: No one is a fit for everyone
  • How to expand your business and still stay focused
  • What is NLP?
  • Your publicist isn't your therapist, buuuut…
  • Are you ready to be seen?
  • What personal branding is really about
  • Your mindset shift for reaching out to the media
  • How social media has warped our sense of timing
  • How long it really takes to build an engaged online community
  • Why follower engagement > number of followers
  • What to do before launching your book

Stay blessed!

Pam
