GS’s Dean of Students, Scott Halvorson, resigned today in order to return “to his first love, writing.” Halvorson actually got an MFA from SoA in 2001, and has won some awards from his screenwriting. So he’s going back to that.
It is with mixed emotions that I write today. Dean Scott Halvorson will be ending his long and distinguished career at GS. Dean Halvorson has been considering for some time returning to his first love, writing. As some of you know, Dean Halvorson earned his MFA at Columbia’s School of the Arts in 2001, with a specialization in screenwriting and won several awards for his work.
As his responsibilities at GS continued to grow, he found that he had less and less time to devote to his writing. Consequently, he has decided that, after 15 years at GS, it is time for him to focus more intensely on his craft.
