Julie Jensens new book can be read in an hour. It will tell you everything you need to know about playwriting and is an excellent companion along the way: Youll get tips on how to begin your work and invaluable guidelines for rewriting. Playwriting, Brief and Brilliant is an exceedingly useful and pragmatic guide to approaching the task of writing a play. JULIE JENSEN was reared in southern Utah. She has a Ph.D. in theater from Wayne State University in Detroit, and she has taught playwriting at seven different colleges and universities. Julie worked as a writer in Hollywood for five years and until recently directed the graduate playwriting program at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. She is now Resident Playwright at Salt Lake Acting Company. Julie is the recipient of the Kennedy Center Award for New American Plays (White Money), the Joseph Jefferson Award for Best New Work (The Lost Vegas Series), and the LA Weekly Award for Best New Play (Two-Headed). She has received the McKnight National Playwriting Fellowship (WAIT!), the TCG/NEA Playwriting Residency (WAIT!), and a major grant from the Pew Charitable Trusts (Dust Eaters). Her play, Two-Headed, was included in the volume Best Plays by Women, 2000, and she has twice been nominated by the American Theatre Critics Association for the best new play produced outside of New York (Last Lists of My Mad Mother and Dust Eaters). Her plays, some thirty in all, have been produced in London, Edinburgh, New York, and theaters nationwide. She knows what shes talking about. And she has a sense of humor.
