My Story

I am Stephen Morgan-MacKay, a Writer, Dramaturg and Purveyor of Truths who specializes in Creative Writing, Digital Copywriting and Communications. 

For what it’s worth, I received my MFA in Dramaturgy and Literary Management from the State University of New York in 2006 and my BA in Theatre (Minor in Creative Writing and American Literature) from the University of South Florida in 2000.

Until now, my life has been a mashup of a little bit of everything and whole lot of nothing in particular. Time wasted, lessons learned – life, ya’ know? I say until now with the deepest sense of urgency, for these are dramatic times. Altogether dangerous, some might say. But it hasn’t always been so…

I can remember back to a time when cassettes were the new kids on the block and Schoolhouse Rock ruled Saturday morning airwaves. A time of situational comedies and movies of the week. TV dinners and ethyl gas lines. A galaxy far, far away but not that long ago.
