Watch Me Work


March 30 - June 4, 2020

Suzan-Lori Parks is back with a #WatchMeWork at home!

Watch Me Work is a performance piece, a meditation on the artistic process, and an actual work session, featuring Suzan-Lori Parks working on her newest writing project. Traditionally hosted on the mezzanine of The Public Theater Lobby, this new version will bring the program to your home via Zoom sessions and HowlRound livestreams.

The audience is invited to come and watch Suzan-Lori Parks work, share the space, and get some of their own writing work done. During the last 40 minutes of the performance, Parks will answer any questions the online Zoom audience and online social audience might have regarding their own work and their own creative process.

Each class will be one hour. During the first 20 minutes Suzan-Lori Parks and students will work on their own writing. During the final 40 minutes of class, Parks will answer questions from students about being a writer and the writing process. Please note: Due to the nature of the class, Parks will focus on answering questions about being a writer and the writing process during the questions portion and will not be offering critiques on any written work.
