Saviana thinks (a lot), writes (a great deal) and teaches (full-time).
What about you? Why don't you :
see/produce/publish/award her plays (recommended),
hire her to teach playwriting workshops and theatre/drama/writing courses (required),
read her blog (suggested),
drop her an email (if you have something witty to say or a commission to offer :-)
Besides teaching at NYU and ESPA - Primary Stages, and visiting teaching/lecturing at many institutions including Columbia University, Pace Univ., Fordham Univ., Arizona Univ, etc, Saviana leads playwriting workshops on on-going basis.
