By Stewart, Craig
Craig Stewart is one of America's most gifted writers. His work debuted on stage in Atlanta with A Day in the Life, wowing sold out audiences and critics alike. Stewart returns with his highly anticipated memoir, Words Never Spoken slated for release May 2012. Said to be Stewart'...s most revealing and personal work yet, Words Never Spoken details his journey as a songwriter, entrepreneur, playwright and self-discovery as a gay Black man living in Atlanta. Stewart writes candidly about his private conversations with media mogul Tyler Perry, and why Perry dubbed Stewart's work brilliant, but opted not to help him. Stewart also pulls us through the rise and fall of his musical relationship with Grammy award-winning recording artist Brandy Norwood. Stewart's story is as clean and crisp as the early works of the late E. Lynn Harris, but destined for a lane of its own because of its nuanced richness. Words Never Spoken reads like a diary that was never intended for the eyes of anyone other than its author. Stewart opens up about his struggles with love, friendships and a two-year bout with depression that led to an internet sex addiction.Read more

Craig Stewart is one of America's most talented young playwrights. His debut stage production, 'A Day in the Life', finished a successful run in Atlanta and established Stewart as one of the nation's up and coming artists. The first in his immediate family to graduate from college, Stewart attended Hampton University, where he received a degree in liberal arts. Originally a native of Baltimore, Stewart moved to Atlanta over a decade ago with dreams of making it in the music industry. Despite his passion and several opportunities to work with established artists and producers, Stewart eventually realized that his future was not just in music. He turned his attention to writing and, in 2002, his first play, 'A Day in the Life', opened at Atlanta's 14th Street Playhouse. The show's original running was cut short by a lack of funding and Stewart's personal battles with depression. In 2004, Stewart founded his own greeting card company, Say It in a Card, LLC. It was through Say It in a Card that he eventually met someone eager to sponsor a second run of 'A Day in the Life'. The new production opened in 2007 to a sold out crowd at the Balzer Theater and was quickly hailed as a powerful artistic statement regarding the emotional and societal pressures experienced by gay African American men. Born out of Stewart's own personal struggles to find self-understanding as a gay man, 'A Day in the Life' touched the hearts and minds of audience members and rapidly won Stewart praise from critics and publications like Southern Voice and DAVID magazine. He also hopes to empower others while he dispels myths about the homosexual community and educates audiences to help prevent the spread of HIV and AIDS. Not content to bask in the glory of his past successes, Stewart is eager to continue impacting others through his writing and creative endeavors. His second play, 'Someone Else's Child', a story of three grandmothers raising their grandchildren under separate circumstances that begs the question, Why are so few biological parents parenting? Stewart aims to continue making a difference in the lives of others as he seeks to help and enlighten those he reaches through his continued endeavors as a playwright.
