Short play being written here

I am interested in collaboratively writing a play about the transition newspapers are making towards more community participation.

This play will be set in the board room of a major city newspaper where editors and reporters are brainstorming ideas for greater community involvement in the news process. Some of the ideas suggested for greater community participation are obviously lame. Some are slightly less lame. And some almost approach the level of being meaningful.

If you'd like to participate in writing this play - titled "Getting There," kindly send me an email with the subject line: Getting There. (Phil Shapiro)

The writing of this play will take place synchronously using the group conference calling capabilities of Gizmo. A minimum of 3 to 4 writers are needed to make this project a success.

Other writings I've done on citizen media topics include:

News Thump
Using Skype as a Community Media Production Tool
Community Content in Public Libraries

Other semi-dramatic writings I've done include -

Tips for Crossing the Panama Canal in a Canoe
Ice on the Moon
Sammy's Autograph Book

Relevant book reviews.
