New workshop announcement! Functional Feedback for Artists!

Announcing the first Artist Soapbox Functional Feedback Workshop!

Artists, have you experienced “constructive criticism” that ultimately held your creative work back rather than moving it forward?  

There’s another way to do feedback!

Join us for a two day Functional Feedback workshop on March 9 and 16, 2019.

The Functional Feedback workshop is for artists who desire useful feedback that propels their work forward.

  • Take ownership of your development process.
  • Control critique while your work is in progress.
  • Learn to manage the feedback conversation, who to have in the room and why, how to set feedback goals and come out the other side feeling inspired.

As the first ASBX Functional Feedback Workshop, this is a beta version. The cost for participation in this group is $75 per person and is limited to 10 participants. Our intention is to add more groups in the future. 

Because of the group nature, a commitment is required. We’re looking for highly-motivated people who are willing to ask for — and give — help and support, and are willing to show up. Questions?

Dates: Saturday, March 9 and March 12 from 9am-noon. (Both sessions are required.)

Facilitators: Mara Thomas and Tamara Kissane

Location: Collective Wellness, 3326 Durham-Chapel Hill Blvd, Suite A230, Durham, NC 27707

Cost: $75*; limited to 10 participants

Deadline to register: The registration deadline has passed. Please let us know if you’d like to join the next group. Email

*Payment is due in full prior to the first meeting.

Artist Soapbox is more than just a podcast.

We lead writers groups, accountability support, workshops, and events. We produce and create audio dramas too! Listen to the Master BuilderThe New Colossus Audio Drama, Jesus Pancake, Declaration of Love, Food for Thought, and ASBX Shorts.

The New Colossus

The New Colossus Audio Drama is a totally unhinged dark comedy reboot of Anton Chekhov’s classic play, THE SEAGULL.


Master Builder

This audio drama was adapted from Tamara’s 2018 stage play produced by Little Green Pig Theatrical Concern and inspired by Henrick Ibsen’s classic, The Master Builder published in 1892.


Declaration of Love

Co-producers Aurelia Belfield and Tamara Kissane of Artist Soapbox commissioned eleven NC playwrights to craft short audio scenes based on the prompt “Declaration of Love.”


Food for Thought

Three pilot episodes of new scripted audio fiction series inspired by the prompt Food for Thought.


ASBX Shorts

ASBX Shorts are six short audio fiction pieces created and produced by North Carolina artists. Artist Soapbox Shorts were specifically contributed by the artists to aid in fundraising and to get everyone excited about Jesus Pancake, our new audio fiction series in development.
