SNL Writing Spotlight: Ezzat Goushegir
SNL Writing Faculty member and playwright, Ezzat Goushegir, had a very productive 2011. She saw many of her works published and produced, both in the U.S. and abroad. Her short story "You are not a Man" was published in an anthology "Afghanistan, a Window on the Tragedy "in January 2011. Her play "My name is Inanna" was translated into Chinese language and produced at the Trojan Theatre in Beijing, China. This play has had several staged readings in Chicago and Washington DC in 2011, and was chosen by the 9th International Women’s Conference to be performed in Sweden in August 2012. For more information and to view some clips of the Chinese production, check out: http://ezzatgoushegir.blogspot.com/2011/11/my-name-is-inanna.html.
