One of the rewarding parts of my job is the ways in which I get to interact with the students. Today I had the chance to talk with last year’s winner of the annual Heermans-McCalmon playwriting contest, Amanda Idoko. Her play, Punching Glass, was produced in a staged reading directed by Richard Hamburger last March. Below you can hear directly from Amanda about her play and the experience of winning the contest. If you’re interested in submitting a play for this year’s contest, all the details can be found at our web page. Proposals are due to me by December 15, 2008! Good Luck!!
