Stephen Sossaman is a poet and playwright living in Charlottesville. His most recent productions were “Dostoevsky and Rykova,” produced at the Play On! Theatre in Charlottesville, Virginia, and “Saved,” in this year’s Overnight Sensations at Mill Mountain Theatre in Roanoke. He is the author of “Writing Your First Play,” the facilitator of the Playwrights Lab at LiveArts Theatre in Charlottesville, and he taught this summer in Hollins University’s new MFA in playwriting program. When he retired early from college teaching, Westfield State College in Massachusetts created the annual “Stephen Sossaman Prize” for creative writing students.
