About Sara Keats
Sara Keats is a marketing professional and freelance dramaturg with wide knowledge and a strong editorial eye.
Currently, she is the marketing manager of Encore Media Group, the publisher of Encore Arts Programs in Seattle and Bay Area and City Arts magazine. She works as research-focused production dramaturg and works with writers one-on-one to develop new plays.
Keats is a co-founder and the new Director of Dramaturgy at Umbrella Project, an organization that advocates for playwrights in the Pacific Northwest and furthers the lives of new plays. She runs the Seattle chapter of the Dramaturgy Open Office Hours Project. Keats is a graduate of the Bachelor of Arts and Humanities program at Carnegie Mellon University where she studied Dramaturgy and English.
"Sara Keats has an uncanny ability to ask exactly the right question, not the one you necessarily want to hear, but the one you need to. Her socially conscious mind and kind heart allow her to go very deep into her work, not only making her dramaturgy analytical, but personal and political as well."
