Over many years, Dr. Kominars has been actively involved with playwriting. His play about homophobia, "Sweet Mystery," has just been presented in a dramatic reading on April 24, 2001, at Venue 9 in San Francisco. It was also selected as a finalist in the Eureka New Plays competition in 1999. He is hoping it will be produced soon.
In February, 2001, Dr. Kominars began doing workshops for cancer survivors at UCSF Medical Center in San Francisco. Previously, he has lectured and given workshops all over the U.S. and abroad on alcohol and drug recovery issues and creativity. Beginning in June, 2001, and continuing throughout the year, "Write For Life" will be offered at Kaiser Permanente and at the Hormel Center of the San Francisco Public Library. The program invites participants to explore through journal writing the experience of what it means to live through each day recovering from cancer and other life-threatening crises (HIV, AIDS, etc.). Dr. Kominars has been writing journals for 45 years and is, since June, 2000, an "advertisement" for early detection of cancer.
He is available as a lecturer and workshop facilitator.
