About the Author:

Janet Neipris is a Professor of Dramatic Writing at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. Her own plays have been produced nationally and internationally at theatres including the Manhattan Theatre Club, the Arena Stage, the Goodman, the Royal National Theatre, London, and the China Arts Theatre, Beijing. She has lectured around the world on playwriting as craft and art.


"With an educator's care and a playwright's insight, Janet Neipris has compiled a thoughtful and eloquent collection of her essays and lectures which, when taken to heart and properly adhered to, offer the aspiring writer a roadmap to artistic fulfillment."
-Richard Wesley, Chair, Goldberg Department of Dramatic Writing, Tisch School of the Arts, New York University
"Here is so much more than merely a list of nifty, useful rules. Janet Neipris's extraordinary book overflows with the warmth and affirmation and--dare I say it?--the love that art demands of artists and audiences alike. It is essential reading not only for playwrights but for all people who love good theater. Its keen, personal insights blend seamlessly with practical, hands-on observations that illuminate the elusive challenges confronting creators of dramatic expression from the moment they write 'Act One, Scene 1'."
-Richard Walter, Writing Chair, UCLA Film School
"This book is indispensable for theneophyte; for the veteran playwright, it is an engaging reminder of the challenges, techniques, and occasional exhilarations of our craft. If I were teaching, I would assign it."
-Doug Wright, author of "I Am My Own Wife
"Neipris's book is packed with personal wisdoms and practical insights that will prove invaluable to any playwright."
-Mark Ravenhill, author of "Shopping and F***ing
