Kiran Subramaniam, ’11, recently completed a 10-day playwriting intensive at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. Subramaniam, who earned degrees in English and theatre, was one of 50 participants. Participants are university students, faculty and emerging professionals from across the country. The program consists of rigorous writing workshops and discussions of the art, craft and business of playwriting with the program's director Gary Garrison, executive director for creative affairs, Dramatists Guild, and a wide range of guest artists.
Subramaniam feels her Meredith education had prepared her well for the playwriting program.
“I majored in both English and theatre, and learned so much from both departments during my time at Meredith,” Subramaniam said. “When I told Paula Vogel where I'd gone to school and the work I did in theatre, she said, "How wonderful it is that you've had the chance to do it all with such strong women!" My experience at Meredith gave me a strong sense of self and the confidence that I was intelligent and capable.”
