In my last update, I explained to you the reason why I have been promoting my book A Million Miles from Broadway in the way that I have – as an “independent” publication I do not enjoy the support and resources of a major publisher or marketing team. This has been a labour of love, as well as a “mission”.
I would like to further explain some of my future hopes and ambitions.Beginning in September, I will be embarking on a Masters Degree in musical theatre at Goldsmiths University of London. This will help me in my work as a musical theatre writer, and will also enable me to teach at a university level. Once I have that, I would like to offer my services as a guest lecturer and workshop facilitator at the international level. I have already put out some feelers in places like Singapore to assist with local musical writers in the work-shopping of new shows.This is somewhat dependant on my being successful in my bid for funding for the course. I have applied for a couple of bursaries but can’t finance it on my own. (I’ll let you know what happens.)
You can help is by telling professionals in the field about this book. I am trying to get it into as many libraries (and onto as many reading lists) as possible.
With gratitude for your understanding and (I hope) support,
