Richard Paris


Richard Paris formerly taught Creative Writing and Rhetoric at Monmouth University. He is the author of a novel, Prophecies of Yesterday, two books of poetry, Last Covenant and Walt’s Place, and 24 plays (3 shamelessly revising the Theban plays, 3 on Iago after Othello, 3 on a rich guy who just wants to hang out with his old buddies, 3 on family life including Happy Marriage and Friendly Divorce, plus plays on evolution, psychosis, betrayal and the academy – not necessarily in that order).Educated at Cal, Berkeley (back in the day), he has worked as a groundskeeper, firefighter, union negotiator, and, briefly, a state bureaucrat. Kept sane (mostly) by his psychologist wife, Paris can often be found muttering about scenarios while wandering through town.
