is creating Writing




per Creative Essay


I am a cultural essayist, and I am writing my first novel. I am irresistibly compelled to write creative, often personal, essays about my interaction with the artistic works that brighten and deepen the world around us.  I write often about theatre, I think because it is so ephemeral, which makes my acts of translation and capture feel interestingly urgent.  I also find that theatre often remakes me quite deeply, and I want to record the scrape of the chisel across my psyche or a beautiful new contour down the back of my spine.  I think more than anything I am interested in exploring, in loving detail, why art has power, and the way its power works upon me.
