Reviewing Materials / Unsolicited Materials
Mr. Schwartz has had to make a policy not to review any materials outside the ASCAP Musical Theatre Workshop and the grant panels he sits on. He feels if he says yes to one, he would have to say yes to all. When the ASCAP workshops are taking submissions, we post a notice on the news section of StephenSchwartz.com. Thank you for understanding Mr. Schwartz’s need to be strict with this policy.
Mr. Schwartz has received a lot of requests from writers interested in having him as a mentor. While he finds this extremely flattering, he simply doesn’t have the time at present, given the projects to which he is currently committed and the mentoring he already does through the ASCAP Workshops he directs. We post information on the annual workshops in the news section of Stephenschwartz.com when it is available.
We ask that students make use of previously published sources of information as a basis for school projects related to Stephen Schwartz and his musicals. The authorized biography “Defying Gravity: the Creative Career of Stephen Schwartz, from GODSPELL to WICKED,” by Carol de Giere, includes hundreds of quotes from Mr. Schwartz and others. In addition, each “Work” included in the WORKS Section of www.stephenschwartz.comincludes links to pdf files that include answers to many questions that Mr. Schwartz was able to provide in previous years. Additional information can be found by following this link Stephen Schwartz Fan Site.
