From 2007-2016, I was the Executive Director of Creative Affairs of the Dramatist Guild of America. Currently, I’m the Director of the Dramatists Guild Institute.

In April of 2014, The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts instituted the National Gary Garrison Ten-Minute Play Award given to the best ten-minute play written by a university dramatist.

In the spring of 2016, I was awarded the Milan Stitt Outstanding Teacher of Playwriting by the Kennedy Center.
