Independent Writer • Educator • Theatre Artist • Activist - Company Message
Committed to peace, equity, justice, sustainability, human rights, arts for social change (and fun), and independent media, Maura Stephens has been
a journalist for more than three decades and a theater artist even longer.

A generalist, she thinks, writes, and speaks on a wide variety of subjects including the humanitarian situation in Iraq; journalism, writing, editing, and publishing; environment, climate, and fracking/fossil fuels exploitation; acting, writing, and producing for theater; entrepreneurship; organic farming and food security; education policy; community organizing; governance, democracy, and people's resistance to tyranny; and various health topics, especially as related to environmental illnesses.

If you're still tuning in to most mainstream media, you are getting corporate spin, not real news. Please check out some of the independent media sites linked below, and start getting the unfettered story!
