HOW TO FIRE YOUR STARVING ARTIST
and GET YOUR PARENTS OFF YOUR BACK!
(Keynote Talk, 30 minutes)
“Monice willingly shares her knowledge and award-winning experience as an author, screenwriter and filmmaker, not in a boastful way, but as an adaptive tool to connect with students. She has been able to reach our girls and I believe that is a true testament to her gift and skill as an instructing artist.” ~ Keren Taylor, Executive Director, WriteGirl
I was always the creative kid. The kid who would rather read, make up skits and write stories to entertain myself, friends and family.
My mother tolerated me and I would even say she was proud of me…
That is, until I reached High School and she enrolled me in a college preparatory engineering program. LOL!
You see I had a problem. I was an alien. An artistic kid growing up in a family of Detroit auto workers. And there was NO ONE in my life that I knew or that my mother knew who was making a living as a writer.
So to make sure that her child could feed herself, my mother did what mothers do and pushed me down the only path she knew — The path to get a real job.
In this engaging, compact keynote talk, I share the steps I took in high school to pursue my dream, win my mother’s confidence and lay the foundation for my college education and writing career.
Ideal for art, acting, music, theatre, writing and filmmaking students, I will teach them how to:
- Pursue tailor-made internships
- Seek out expert mentors
- Apply for unique scholarships and more!
