One Year with the Revels Directors’ Blog

Posted by Washington Revels
January 1, 2019

In our January 2018 e-newsletter we announced a new monthly blog series, featuring letters, essays, and musings from the directorial staff at Washington Revels; the first post in this series was published in February. As 2019 begins, we thought we’d look back at all 11 blog posts (and group them in one convenient place!). The Directors’ Blog showcases a range of voices and topics, and highlights many facets of Revels — some well known, but others less familiar. Enjoy re-reading these posts, catch up on any you might have missed, and stay tuned for more in 2019!
