ABOUT ELIZABETH, WRITER-WISE

Love, Sex, and Storytelling

A tenacious dramedy devotee, Elizabeth writes unconventional love stories championing people we rarely see onscreen. Her recent screenwriting accolades include a Stowe Story Labs Development Grant; ColorCreative/Powderkeg Teen Movie Top 8 (out of more than 2000 pitches); ISA Fast Track Fellowship and WeScreenplay Diverse Voices Finalist; Table Read My Screenplay Top 10, and AFF Second Rounder.

What they're saying... An industry reader dubbed Elizabeth’s ~gay kid in the 90s writes a zine instead of coming out~ pilot, ETHEL, as “…tonally sharp and atmospheric, oozing with teenage moodiness somewhere between SEX EDUCATION, LOVE, VICTOR, and DARE ME." Her commissioned queer erotic novel, ROGUE, was described by an early reader as "Fifty Shades for thinking people."


Elizabeth is here to make some good trouble on the page, and she's building a team to join her in that work.

COMMENT

by Dorothy Parker

Oh, life is a glorious cycle of song,
A medley of extemporanea;
And love is a thing that can never go wrong;
And I am Marie of Roumania.
