Random House buys the second Bill Esper acting book

On 23, Oct 2012 | In Non-Fiction Book | By admin

The first book

Damon wrote The Actor’s Art and Craft: William Esper Teaches the Meisner Technique with his mentor and long-time friend, Bill Esper. The book quickly gained prominence as a work to rival Sanford Meisner’s On Acting, Uta Hagen’s Respect for Acting, or Stella Adler’s The Art of Acting.

Damon teaches writing at Drew University’s Caspersen School of Graduate Studies

On 23, Feb 2012 | In Event | By admin

Damon has started teaching a course on writing to PhD students in History and Culture at Drew University’s Caspersen School of Graduate Studies.

From the Caspersen School’s course offerings, Spring semester 2012:

HC 806 001 Writing as a Public Intellectual
Prof. Damon DiMarco

A distinguishing component of a doctorate in history and culture is public engagement. This writing workshop introduces advanced Ph.D. students to the practice of writing for the larger public, that is, for intellectually and culturally engaged readers of non-academic print and online media.  The goal of the workshop is for each student to learn how to modulate the discursive practices of academic writing into the substantial but accessible writing of a genuinely public intellectual.
