Watch Me Work is a communal work session for anyone eager to nurture and sustain their creative process. Facilitated by Public Theater Playwright-in-Residence Suzan-Lori Parks and the New Work Development department, Watch Me Work takes place via Zoom sessions and HowlRound livestreams that you can join at home, at school, or in a coffee shop from anywhere in the world!

What Happens During Watch Me Work

Each session will be one hour. During the first twenty minutes, Suzan-Lori Parks and participants engage in an individual creative working session on their own project. During the remaining forty minutes of class, participants are part of a real-time dialogue with Parks and each other about their process. Are you feeling stuck and can’t figure out how to move forward? Are you looking for encouragement or motivation for what you’re working on? Do you want to talk through an idea you have for a new artistic project? Watch Me Work is here to help!

What Does Not Happen During Watch Me Work

In alignment with the ethos of Watch Me Work, Parks and participants will not be sharing work and receiving critique. In addition, Parks will not be participating in a Q&A about her body of work. Watch Me Work is about hearing about your work and supporting you.
