Lauren's story

I'm a writer from Florida who just recently moved to Edinburgh to pursue a master's degree in Screenwriting from Napier University and a career in the TV/film industry here in the UK! I currently write for the online publication SheSources, a platform for women by women interested in a career in the entertainment industry. I also host a podcast called ChickFlix Film Club where myself, Malin Evita, Emma Stern, and Lauren San Miguel discuss the female faze in films on a monthly basis. I have previously produced my own sketch comedy show and two short films. I've also worked as a writer's assistant for an animation company based out of New York called Baboon Animation, and as a talent booker for the political satire podcast, Obeid 2036. My goal post-graduation is to get into a Talent scheme and become a staff writer on a TV series! I also hope to produce more works while I study and would love to further explore the realm of making light-hearted documentaries.
