Maxine Schur
Lecture: Curtain Up!

This 90-minute lecture has proved enormously helpful to both beginning and advanced writers who want to improve the quality of their work. With a Bachelor's Degree in Theatre Arts from U.C. Berkeley and diverse experience as a professional actress for both stage and television, Maxine Rose Schur shows how she applies theater techniques to her fiction writing to improve believable characterization, enhance dialogue, tighten structure, gain grace, and uncover meaning.

Original, entertaining yet highly practical, this lecture offers down-to earth advice that participants can easily use right away.

"The lecture was terrific and you were delightful. I learned a great deal by listening to you."
Sam Savin, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Case Western Reserve University.

"I thought Maxine Rose Schur's remarks on the relations of writing to theater training as kinds of imaginative play were very interesting. They will no doubt be of use to our own students in their efforts to write for children."
Tom Bishop, Associate Professor of English and Director of the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities, Case Western Reserve University
