A “New” Radioplay

So I’ve been talking about my radioplay, Like a Writing Desk, for what feels like a small forever now. The good news is that production dates are firming up, and it should be on air early in 2013. The even gooder news is that The Lifted Brow has commissioned me to drum up an article on crows and […]
