SCF to Host Hermitage Writer in Residence Carson Kreitzer

(Bradenton, Fla., February 1, 2011) — State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) language and literature department welcomes celebrated playwright Carson Kreitzer as the first SCF Hermitage writer in residence at noon – 1:30 p.m., Feb. 9, at SCF Venice, 8000 S.

Kreitzer is known for her plays “The Love Song of J. Robert Oppenheimer,” “SELF DEFENSE or death of some salesmen” and “Freakshow.” Recently, Kreitzer’s play, “Behind the Eye,” won a National Education Association grant to support its final development and production at the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park in April. An upcoming collection of “SELF DEFENSE” and other plays will be published by No Passport Press in April.

Through SCF’s unique partnership with the Hermitage, Kreitzer shares her writing experience with the College while she develops new material at the Hermitage. The Hermitage nurtures creativity in mid-career writers, painters, poets, playwrights, composers, translators, sculptors, and artists working in digital media to benefit the community.

The event is sponsored by the SCF Student Activity Budget Review Committee and the Eaton Fund.
