15-minute Plays Fringe of Marin Festival–4 women Carol Sheldon, Patricia Morin, Annette Lust, Suzanne Birrell

While each play had interesting points, Carol Sheldon’s and Patricia Morin’s were the best in Program 1.

Go see for yourselves!

Carol Sheldon

How can a talented novelist also be a great playwright AND a fabulous actress too! Yes, Carol Sheldon can be all 3!

Carol’s play Three Old Ladies Talk About Sex (monologues) was the second one in the program; during intermission, I heard a woman tell Creative Director Annette Lust “The second play was wonderful” and the two people nearby voice their agreement.

Patricia L. Morin,

The lessons in your play The Gatekeeper are heartfelt.  Engaging, entertaining, thought-provoking!  Brava!

Is Kathryn G. McCarty teaching a Creative Writing Class to Kids and Teens?

I just received an email from Kathryn G. McCarty who says:

Could you please pass this on to parents who might be interested in enrolling their child? Or any Elementary School teachers who might know students who would benefit from this class?

Become inspired as you work on scripts, short stories, memoirs, fables,  monologues, comic novellas, or poetry. This two week camp culminates in an online teen creative writing magazine showcasing student writer’s work – be published online! Camp is for ALL LEVELS of writers.

Mon- Thurs 8/8-18   10a-12p    2634S

Residents $183 Non Residents $201

You can sign up online at:

Or call the office at (925) 254-2554
Writing samples from former students:
My first memories of creative writing are from the 2nd grade.  I know that the “writing bug” starts early and needs lots of nourishment.  I give students daily prompts, and they are encouraged to work at their own speed.   Students have an opportunity to share their writing each day, and also learn how to give and take constructive criticism in order to grow as a writer.
All levels of young writers are welcomed in this class!
The two week session costs $180 for residents, $198 for non-residents.
Thanks for passing the word!”

Kathryn is a fun and encouraging teacher. I had a chance to be her student in a production of the Vagina Monologues, by Eve Ensler (a fundraiser for Community Violence Solutions in 2010) so I speak from experience. And, I’ve seen Ms. McCarty interact with young people; she’s a caring teacher.
