JANUARY in BC: First Day as UVic Sessional!

Nearly ten years after sitting in my own third year drama writing workshop at the University of Victoria (lead by Maureen Bradley!), I had my first day today as a Sessional Instructor for the very same class.

The class runs once a week until April 4th, primarily acting as a workshop for the students’ screenwriting (be that a short film, a webseries, or a TV pilot.) I am honoured and just incredibly stoked. Teaching is like playtime for me, and I’m already impressed with the vibe of the 15 students I’ll be spending the new year with.
