Jill Elaine Hughes: American Playwright
When I first met Jill Hughes, I was more than impressed by her writing style. Like most dedicated career writers, Jill's professional work varies. She has the ability...which isn't easy to do...to switch from technical writing to fiction without making it look difficult. And the one thing that's always impressed me the most about Jill's work is that the tight, well-trained, ability to craft words into sentences and form paragraphs is there.
And I just read where Jill has been mentioned here, as an American Playwright now.
She is currently the only American playwright to have her work included in three consecutive editions of Applause Books' prestigious BEST AMERICAN SHORT PLAYS anthologies, where she is privileged to share pages with such dramatic powerhouses as Neil LaBute, John Guare, David Lindsay-Abaire and David Ives, among others. She is also a member of Chicago Writers' Bloc, a playwrights' collective.
