Introduce Yourself : Screenwriter by Jennifer Smith

Jennifer Smith

Screenwriter

Hi, everyone. I am introducing myself for the second time here on Stage32. In January I left my teaching job of seven years for several reasons, but the main one was that it made me miserable pretty much 24/7. Life’s too short to be miserable all the time, so I’m going for what I had always wanted in the first place—a creative life. Screenwriting is a big part of that for me. I took classes and workshops in it years ago and loved it. I also enjoy theatre— did a literary internship for a Philadelphia theatre devoted to developing new plays. Took a couple of acting classes and liked those too. In the end, though, screenwriting was what really made me feel like I was home. I’m glad to be part of this amazing community. Cheers.

Good for you for following a dream. With the job market the way it is today, to give up a job to pursue something as speculative as screenwriting takes a lot of strength and courage. I tip my hat to you and wish you the greatest success.

Jennifer Smith

Thank you, Scott. I appreciate your kind and encouraging words. I will still have to do “survival” work, but it won’t be teaching in an intensive English program 24 hours a day. Thanks again!
