The He Said, She Said workshop will be conducted by Jeff Sanger. Jeff studied writing at the University of Pittsburgh, but learned what he knows about dialogue from his work in community mental health. His play “Crazy” was based on some of those experiences and produced for the stage as part of the 2011 Pittsburgh New Works Festival. His work has also been published by Akashic Books, The Compleat Mother, Mt. Lebanon Magazine, and Souf Oaklin’ Fo’ Life. When he’s not teaching English composition for GCC main and north campuses he enjoys playing Minecraft with his three children and cooking with his wife. He’s been married for over 14 years, proof he knows how to listen to what people say!
