2022 Blaine Quarnstrom Playwright Series: Q&A with Phillip Howze Session 1

The series features two public Q&A sessions with Playwright-In-Residence, Phillip Howze, highlighting his working methods and industry trends. In session 1, Howze will share his thoughts on playwriting. It will focus on the playwright’s specific works, creative journey, learning experiences and approaches. 

Howze is a playwright whose work has been developed or produced at renowned festivals and theatres. His NY playwriting debut "Frontieres Sans Frontieres" premiered in a sold-out, extended engagement at The Bushwick Starr and was named one of the "10 Best Theatrical Productions of the Year" by New York Magazine. His first published play collection entitled Rarities & Wonders: Plays is forthcoming from Tripwire Harlot Press in Spring 2022.

The Blaine Quarnstrom Playwright Series, founded in 2006, fosters the writing of dramatic literature by students from both the Theatre and English programs. It does so through Q&A sessions and creative writing workshops led by a leading American playwright.
