Coordinator of Volunteer Resources for a large nonprofit.

On the side I make movies with one of my best friends under the production company Soundstage 93. I write, he directs, we produce.  We've finished a few projects, latest one is here:

Produced for the 2018 Blood & Guts 48 hour film competition 
Required elements: Horror genre, holiday theme, flashlight, and the line "What's that supposed to mean"

I gotta say, seeing a script turn into a film is the craziest thing ever. :)

Communications analyst for the state-- Mostly Medicaid. I write communications for providers, plans, partners, legislators, members, manage websites and mass mailings, advise on communication strategies, etc. (and am generally known for "performing magic" LOL). So weird how so many here are writing in the health care field! 

But have been a creative writer all my life but it only occurred to me upon seeing the NYCM posts pop up in my FB feed that I could use my talents for turning around urgent writing requests to finally go back to "real" writing!....So, glad I tried it out!

Well, we're definitely a diverse bunch, aren't we :P That's great to see!

I'm currently a Copywriting & PR Content Manager for a video game company (a job I took to get into interactive narrative). 

Always been passionate about storytelling, but only really got into scriptwriting during my undergraduate degree, where I took a class in playwrighting. I then went on to do a Masters in Scriptwriting (for screen and radio), worked as a freelance script writer/editor for a few years, and now here I am :)

Technical writer -- online help and training materials for insurance administration software. Just as interesting as it sounds, but I've somehow managed to be there 20 years now. 

Started writing novels and short stories around 2003. Accidentally wrote a screenplay four years ago, never looked back.

I print T shirts, hoodies and accessories for horsey people. I am also a home educator to 2 of my 5 children. The others have left home or are in college. I write the occasional blog post for a friend's business too.

ELT author (coursebooks for secondary and adult education, resource books for teachers etc.), conference speaker, teacher trainer. So I spend four or five months a year living out of a suitcase and eight in my pjs. 

Creative writing - there's an element of it in my job (word counts of 250 - 500 words, usually, with a limit on the lexis and grammar), but apart from that, I've been writing since I was a child, whether stories, poetry (been published) or my journals. I have a blog with bits and bobs, and am supposed to be writing a novel, and expanding on some of my blog things, but...... as a single mum for the last 18 years, time has not been in great supply, SO as it's now beginning to say Hello again, I'm here to learn, and to feel like I actually can do it. Maybe. One day.  'The Dream Spinners', my Ch1 screenplay, was the first screenplay I've ever written, although audioplays are part of my job (not often very exciting ones, but I'm allowed to get creative from time to time). 

So yeah, that's me. Next!
