Liz Kerin is an award-winning playwright, screenwriter, and author, who earned her degree from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. On the film and television side, she was chosen for the 2016 Hit List and the Young and Hungry List, which names the top up-and-coming screenwriters in the industry. She is currently developing a number of Film/TV projects and penning book adaptations on assignment. Her own novel, The Phantom Forest, will be released by Inkshares in July of 2019. Playwriting honors include The Kennedy Center, Theatricum Botanicum, The Road Theatre, FringeNYC, and Unicorn Theatre. Her play Stop-Motion was recently awarded the 2018 Parity Commission and is in development with Parity Productions in NYC, with an eye toward an Off-Broadway premiere in 2020. She lives with her husband and two unruly dogs and enjoys traveling, the outdoors, baking (even though she’d be the first to be kicked out of the Great British Bakeoff tent), and musical theatre karaoke nights.
