Shannon Kelley -


Shannon Kelley is a screenwriter who writes comedies about unrequited love, failed idealism, and the lure of nostalgia. Specifically, many of her stories focus on honestly depicting gay people in the American South (although she doesn’t shy away from banjos either).

Shannon recently received her MFA in Screenwriting from Columbia University. While there, her script “Unitarians” won Faculty Honors and she received the Alex Sichel Fellowship. In her spare time, Shannon organizes with the New York City Dyke March, which brings dykes from all over the world together each year to celebrate.

Born in Atlanta, GA, she currently lives in Brooklyn. She is tentatively on twitter @shangoskel.
