I had the pleasure of working with Skylar on my play, "Apartness." She offered very thoughtful and very thorough feedback on my work, and had prepared a number of questions which were both insightful as well as constructive. Without being prescriptive, she was able to help me arrive at better ways to sculpt dialogue as well as orchestrate a scene so that it lives up to its fullest potential in terms of both dramatic tension as well as plausibility. She had a keen eye and intuitive sense of the world I was trying to create and the story I was trying to tell. I very much look forward to revising my script based on the ideas she helped me arrive at, and I am both relieved and inspired by how much the play will improve. Her dramaturgy was invaluable, and any writer (or other theatre professional) will benefit greatly from collaborating with her. Thank you, Skylar, I hope to work with you again in the future!
