“Penn Kemp will read several scenes from her plays to serve as inspiration for your own writing, whether as dialogue or as poetry or prose, whatever form it may take. We will work with memory, sound,dreams, images and character development to conjure evocative new ways of entering your writing. Perhaps a memoir will emerge; perhaps a story: be open to the surprise of possibility. For more information on Penn’s work, see www.mytown.ca/pennkemp. Come prepared to raise the roof of your imagination!” Sponsored by Playwrights Guild.

January 24 or 25, 2015. “Homeward Bound”, PlayWrights Cabaret. A scene from a full-length play Penn is working on about London’s arts community mid-(last) century, thanks to a Ontario Arts Council Theatre Reserve grant from the Grand Theatre, London, Ontario and a London Arts Council Community Arts Investment Program grant.  The play will be produced in London by AlvegoRoot Theatre in 2015.
