"Del Shores' workshop fosters an environment that encourages writers to write. Pure and simple. His own background and personality encourages a writer to explore and create his or her own narrative in their own unique voice. There is something magical about writing a scene and watching skilled actors create your story off the page .... "
"Del really knows how to teach writing in a way that is "actor friendly" and easy to understand, overall an AMAZING experience. Sign me up again!"
"Del not only helped me see the importance of giving each character a distinct and unique voice, but gave me the tools and knowledge I need to achieve it."
Del Shores has written seven plays, all published by Samuel French and produced thousands of times worldwide. Four were adapted for screen. He has directed Academy Award, Grammy Award and Emmy-winning actors. As a performer, he has performed in hundreds of standup gigs and is currently on a national tour with his new critically acclaimed one-man play "Six Characters In Search Of A Play," directed by Emerson Collins.
