The past few months have been busy and fun for our region. This period kicked off, for me at least, with the National Conference in New York at the end of July. What a whirlwind! So much positive, creative playwriting energy crammed into one space was absolutely invigorating. I just about wore my voice out talking with writers from all over, including quite a few from New England. One of the best parts was getting to meet so many other regional reps, who are finding exciting ways to engage their communities.
